The Lithuanian government has set aside €18 million to support the country's dairy farmers. They will start receiving the subsidy in early May.
"Members of cooperatives will get 10% more support that other milk producers," she added.
Farmers will be entitled to €78.23 of support per cow, or €86.05 if they are members of a cooperative.
Lithuanian dairy farmers have been badly hit by a lull in global milk prices. They have insisted many farmers will not survive without any government support and staged a protest in Vilnius several weeks ago.
The Lithuanian parliament recently passed a controversial law setting the minimum price that processors must pay for milk, but the bill has been challenged due to procedural violations.
