Speaking in advance of the National Economic Dialogue in Dublin Castle, which begins today, IFA President Eddie Downey said that balanced economic recovery must be a key Government objective and this requires a greater focus on, and investment in, rural Ireland.
Speaking after yesterday’s (Tuesday) meeting of the IFA National Dairy Committee, IFA President Eddie Downey said dairy farmers had taken enough, and further milk price cuts would leave them in a serious loss-making situation. He urged co-op board members, who will be meeting in coming days to hold the June milk price, and to turn their attentions to internal efficiencies and improved selling by fully leveraging the resources of Ornua’s Kerrygold and Bord Bia’s Origin Green.
