RISING INPUT COSTS ERODE PRICE GAINS FOR FARMERS
The Outlook/Review 2014 undertaken by IFA Economist Kevin Kilcline shows that National Farm Income in 2013 is estimated to have risen by 2.4% on 2012. Output volumes are estimated to have risen significantly for the dairy and cereals sector, while there was also some increase in volumes for cattle, sheep and poultry. The dreadful weather conditions experienced in the first six months of 2013 resulted in significantly higher input costs with both price and volume increases for feed and fertiliser.
