All farmers are invited to attend and get involved in shaping the future of Irish farming. ”

“In my capacity as chair of ICSA’s Animal Health & Welfare committee, I would also be particularly interested to hear farmers’ concerns with the TB eradication programme. ICSA are currently sitting at the TB Forum and are keen to bring local Cavan issues to the table. ICSA beef chair Edmund Graham and sheep chair Sean McNamara will also be on hand and are eager to hear about the issues locally, so come along and have your say.”
