ICSA beef chair Edmund Graham has said he is hopeful the Chinese market for Irish beef can be reactivated without delay. “This is an atypical case of BSE so it will not impact on our progress towards the OIE’s requirements around reaching negligible status for the disease. Nor are there any public health risks associated with the finding,” he said.

“It is our understanding the Department of Agriculture will prepare an epidemiological report on the issue and we expect the matter to be resolved in a timely manner. It is imperative that we can act fast on this in order to minimise disruption.”

ALDI PRICE CUTS ON BEEF AND LAMB PERPETUATING UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS

ICSA Beef chair John Cleary has hit out at Aldi for claiming that their latest round of price cuts will not impact on the prices paid to any of its suppliers. “This is a ludicrous claim; Aldi's assertion that their price cuts will not affect their suppliers is simply unacceptable and out of touch with the reality faced by Irish farmers. It is our assertion that cutting the prices of Irish beef and lamb directly undermines the efforts and livelihoods of Irish cattle and sheep farmers,” he said.
