ICSA SLAMS PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO NUTRIENT EXCRETION RATES

ICSA SLAMS PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO NUTRIENT EXCRETION RATES

ICSA Beef chair John Cleary has slammed the proposal to reduce the nutrient excretion rates of heifers while increasing the rates for male cattle as part of the interim review of the Nitrates Action Programme. “As an organisation representing drystock farmers we believe these changes are fundamentally unfair and biased. It appears to us to be no more than a deliberate manoeuvre to skew nitrates data in favour of one sector at the expense of another,” he said.

UNWORKABLE DEADLINE UNDER NATIONAL SHEEP WELFARE SCHEME MUST BE AMENDED

UNWORKABLE DEADLINE UNDER NATIONAL SHEEP WELFARE SCHEME MUST BE AMENDED

ICSA president Sean McNamara has welcomed the opening of the National Sheep Welfare Scheme but said the October date for completion of the necessary actions needs to be pushed back. “Setting a mid-October deadline is highly impractical for hill sheep farmers, as their livestock will still be out grazing on the mountains at that time. To fulfil the required actions, ewes would need to be brought down from the mountains, a task typically not undertaken until late October and into November,” he said.
