The recent approval of the Royal Decree-Law 4/2023 of 11 May, colloquially known as the ‘Drought Decree’, has caused uneasiness within the livestock sector of the Madrid community due to the official cataloging that this sector has been received and as a result, according to Asja, due to the lack of natural pastures due to very little rain this spring and due to increased prices and shortages of fodder and fodder, the impact on the economic goods obtained in a very complex context Madrid complaint.
In accordance with this distinction, the central government has established three different zones: high, medium and areas of moderate affection. Each one has a specific level of damage and danger from a climatic point of view, and in this sense the Community of Madrid is included in zone 2, moderate status.
As Francisco José García explains, “This means that according to this classification, the farmers of Madrid will receive half as much aid as those of other regions. The problem here is to enter into the classification of droughts by levels. It is a similar problem, only its effects are more or less obvious, but drought is global, universal.
This distinction by regions also provides the maximum amount of aid based on those regions. For the Community of Madrid, these maximum amounts are 78.50 Euro per beef cow (sucker), 9 Euro per sheep and meat goat, 30.50 Euro per milk cow and 5.50 Euro per sheep and milk goat. The aid will be given only to those farms or beneficiaries who exceed the threshold of 200 Euros according to the scales.
They call on the community to come to their rescue and provide support measures like other sectors
Similarly, a limit is also established in terms of the number of eligible cattle: suckling cow producers will receive 100% of the amount mentioned for the first 250 cows and 50% for your entire census from 251. Maximum 725 eligible animals per beneficiary have been established for cow milk producers.
Sheep and goat producers will receive 100% of the respective amount for the first 2,000 animals and 50% of the same for the remaining eligible animals.
“There is an economic item of 276 million euros for agriculture, but it has not yet been developed how it will be distributed and it is important that this point can be resolved as soon as possible. We hope that on agriculture More attention will be paid, because this campaign is sown very expensive and what is going to be gathered is as little as possible. This campaign is the most expensive sowing in history. We hope that the Madrid community will support farmers and Will come out in support of the cattle ranchers, as the situation is dire. In both Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura, 30 million euros worth of specific goods have been taken.
