Following a meeting of the CAP Advisory Committee in the Department of Agriculture today, IFA Deputy President Richard Kennedy said IFA is very clear on the need for a National Reserve for young farmers in 2017. He said the National Reserve can be funded from unused funds allocated under the Young Farmer Scheme without the necessity to take any additional funds from existing entitlements.
