|Farmers should insist on payment on the day for their cattle|
At the conclusion of the beef talks this morning, IFA President Joe Healy said despite movement on a number of issues, beef farmers will be disappointed that there is no increase on the main issue of beef prices. He said the fact that the talks took place on the precondition that price would not be discussed was ignoring the elephant in the room.
At the conclusion of day two of the beef talks, IFA President Joe Healy said that Agriculture Minister Michael Creed has agreed to get involved directly in the talks with a view to resolving the outstanding issues, especially around the 30-month age limit.
