ICSA beef chairman Edmond Phelan has warned farmers to make sure they get the €3 bonus for animals which are under 36 months and from quality assured herds but which do not qualify for the current 12c/kg in-spec bonus.

“We have evidence of farmers who have sold cattle but, whether by accident or design on the part of the factories, have not received this payment,” said Mr. Phelan. “While the €3 is a completely insufficient payment, farmers still need to make sure they are actually getting what they are entitled to.”

“If factories are purposely not paying farmers this bonus, then the Minister must intervene and ensure that the terms of the roundtable agreement are adhered to.”
