Government has until end April to claim agrimoney package valued at 202m, of which 77 Million is for Dairying ~ 0.5ppl - earliest payment Autumn 2001. There is an election in May - and coffers are full - the prurient Scot saw to that.

Advise: In the face of increasing milk price both from the market and gaining euro, with a back ground, reducing interest rates, and agrimoney compensation clients are advised to forward lease NOW around 3.5ppl. Will we see a 6% Base rate average for the next 6 years with maybe a trough of 3.5-4.5%? If so - then quota purchase around 19ppl is a realistic option. Historically during better milk prices - clean quota is double the price of milk and leasing one fifth of the clean price. Leasing is now less than 1/5th the milk price and clean quota slightly less than this years anticipated milk price for the larger producer - ie 20+ppl.. Will we get 21- 22ppl within 12-18 months - its feasible - agriculture is on a roller coaster, last year was the trough
