ONUS ON MEAT FACTORIES TO ACT RESPONSIBLYCattle
IFA National Livestock Chairman Brendan Golden said factories are paying a base price of €3.65/€3.70 for steers this week and €3.75 for heifers in places.
He said there was a major onus on the meat factories to act responsibly on price in these unprecedented circumstances.
Brendan Golden said the factories had put increased safety protocols in place for COVID19 and it was essential that these were fully observed by all suppliers.
