Subject to certain conditions, Member States can receive EU co-financing of 50% for expenditures incurred when compensating farmers forced to kill and destroy their animals and for operational expenditures associated with the destruction of contaminated animals and products.

The provisional limits of EU reimbursements are set at €440,000 for Germany, €500,000 for Luxembourg and €6,000,000 for Spain.
