There is also a maximum number of eligible animals, for example, in the case of cattle, the first 250 cows (sucklers).

The unitary payment per full hectare will also be differentiated, differentiating between the provinces of Almería, Granada, Málaga and Álava (Basque Country) together with other autonomous communities such as Aragón, Cataluña, Navarra and La Rioja compared to the rest of the Andalusian provinces, Castilla-La Mancha , Extremadura, Murcia and the Valencian Community. All will be paid through the FEGA to the farms that are beneficiaries of direct aid from the CAP in this campaign with a limit of 70 hectares per beneficiary.
