IFA President Joe Healy has said the findings of a report published today by Minister Heather Humphreys, examining the impact of Brexit on Ireland’s trade and economy, are very stark for farming and food in Ireland.
IFA National Sheep Chairman Sean Dennehy has said the clean sheep policy is causing severe difficulties at some meat plants. He said it is clear that the Department of Agriculture is implementing the policy in an overzealous fashion at some factories and this is causing major problems for farmers and for factories.
