Irish Pig and Poultry Investment Scheme

CRS can help unlock the potential for Irish farmers to maximise their benefits from the Irish Pig and Poultry Investment Scheme by offering tailored solutions.

Unlocking Potential for Irish Farmers

The Pig and Poultry Investment Scheme, an initiative by the Irish government, marks a significant step towards modernising farming practices while adhering to stringent animal welfare standards. This scheme not only prioritises the welfare of animals but also focuses on enhancing energy efficiency, thereby reinforcing the competitive edge and income of farmers. Key to this initiative is the provision of financial aid, covering up to 40% of investment costs, with a ceiling of €200,000 per holding. This support is vital for farmers who meet the eligibility criteria, including the production of a minimum of 20 units.

CRS Mobile Cold Storage: A Strategic Ally

CRS Mobile Cold Storage emerges as an essential ally for farmers aiming to capitalise on this scheme. Our role is multidimensional, addressing various aspects of the scheme’s requirements:

Advanced Cold Storage for Medicines and Vaccines: Given the scheme’s support for medicine dispenser units, CRS offers cutting-edge cold storage solutions. These units ensure that critical medicines and vaccines are stored at optimal temperatures, a necessity for effective disease management in livestock.

Promoting Energy Efficiency: Aligning with the scheme's emphasis on energy efficiency, our units have advanced energy-saving cooling systems. This approach not only reduces energy consumption but also slashes operational costs, a benefit for farmers navigating tight financial landscapes.

Adaptable and Scalable Solutions: Our mobile cold storage units are designed for flexibility and scalability. This is particularly beneficial for upgrades in feed systems and new housing solutions for various livestock stages. Customisation is key, and CRS is adept at tailoring solutions to the unique needs of each farm.

Biosecurity Enhancement: In the realm of disease reduction, CRS provides storage options that support biosecurity measures. Segregating materials and equipment through proper storage can significantly lower the risk of disease transmission, a critical aspect of animal welfare.

Cost-Effectiveness: With the financial cap set by the scheme, CRS's solutions are both high-quality and economical, ensuring farmers can make the most of their investments without overstretching their budgets.

Compliance and Standards: Our solutions are crafted to meet the stringent standards set by the scheme, ensuring farmers maintain their eligibility for the grant.

Expert Guidance and Support: CRS goes beyond mere provision of equipment. We offer comprehensive consultation, assisting farmers in understanding how our solutions can be integrated into their project proposals, thus aligning with the objectives of the scheme.
