AS BEEF TALKS RESUME, TIME FOR POSTURING AND GRANDSTANDING TO STOPCattle
IFA President Joe Healy welcomed the recommencement of beef talks tomorrow morning. He said it was time to stop the grandstanding and the posturing, and to get down to real talks.
“Meat Industry Ireland and the Minister must come forward with concrete and substantive proposals to resolve the issues and improve the position of farmers,” he said.
“We can’t afford to spend any time on posturing and game playing. We need to get this solved this weekend,” he said.
“IFA has detailed proposals which were put forward by our National Livestock Committee and agreed at our National Council this week,” he said.
