Overgrazing

10.—(1) Subject to paragraph (4), where at any time in the 12 months preceding the first date for lodging claims pursuant to regulation 11(1), the Department formed the opinion that any parcel of land was being overgrazed it may notify the occupier of the maximum number of breeding cows which may be grazed and maintained on that parcel in the Scheme Year.

(2) Subject to paragraph (4), where at any time in the 12 months preceding the first date for lodging claims pursuant to regulation 11(2), the Department formed the opinion that any parcel of land is being overgrazed, it may notify the occupier of the maximum number of ewes which may be grazed and maintained on that parcel in the Scheme Year.

(3) The maximum numbers referred to in paragraphs (1) and (2) shall be determined by taking account of the number of other animals likely to be grazed and maintained on the parcel concerned in the Scheme Year and having regard to such conditions as may be specified in the notification.

(4) Where the Department has previously issued a notification under paragraph (1) or paragraph (2) in relation to any parcel of land, it may issue a further such notification in relation thereto without having formed the opinion that it was being overgrazed.

(5) Where the Department has issued a notification under paragraph (1) or paragraph (2), no compensatory allowance shall be paid in respect of the Scheme Year for any breeding cow or ewe grazed and maintained in the Scheme Year on the land to which it relates in excess of the maximum number of breeding cows or ewes specified in the notification.
