IFA President Tim Cullinan said that this Sunday’s Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show is an opportunity for farmers to take a much-needed break from what has been a very difficult summer for farming.
“Farmers all across Ireland have had to deal with a number of setbacks this summer, with the weather in particular playing havoc with the cereal harvest and silage making. Farmers have had little chance to take time out from the farm so the opportunity for farmers to attend what is an excellent showcase of the best of Irish farming is a chance to focus on the many positive aspects of the sector,” Tim Cullinan said.
“The IFA will be using the show as an opportunity to highlight the pressing concerns farmers now have given the difficulties 2023 has presented and how the upcoming Budget 2024 can help address some of those challenges,” the IFA President said.
“What will be on show this Sunday is a testament to the passion, commitment and investment of farmers who take great pride in what they produce,” he said.
IFA will be present at the Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show this Sunday, August 13th, at the location L58-59. A number of IFA committee chairs, regional and policy executives will be available to discuss any queries you may have. IFA & Bord Gáis Solar will also be present on the day to provide all the necessary information for those interested in installing solar on their farm.
