Farmers who were hit by the severe snow storms during spring only have until the end of the day to apply for government aid.
South of Scotland MSP Jim Hume is urging farmers in Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders to apply for their share of the £6 million aid package.
Thousands of sheep were left buried under massive snow drifts during the snow storms.
"Farmers across the Borders and the south west were hit hard by the very severe weather at a time when their livestock were especially vulnerable.
"This aid package will be a lifeline for many businesses and it's critical that those most in need apply before the Friday deadline."
