Cautious Welcome for Turkish Export Market

ICSA has cautiously welcomed the prospect of the Turkish market opening to live Irish cattle
Dermot Kelleher, suckler chairman at the Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association (ICSA) has cautiously welcomed the prospect of the Turkish market opening to live Irish cattle. “All new markets for live exports are welcome, however, I am disappointed with the 21 day quarantine period that may be imposed.”

Continuing, Mr Kelleher said “The last thing we need is more red tape and restrictions that will militate against this move being a success. Keeping cattle in quarantine for three weeks is an expensive prospect for any exporter. We can only hope that the price of the quarantine won’t impact too much on the price paid to producers.”
