ICSA president Patrick Kent is calling on the Irish government to reopen its Embassy in Tehran. Following a meeting today in Dublin with the Iranian Ambassador to Ireland, His Excellency Javad Kachoueian, Mr Kent said “Huge opportunities for exports of beef and sheepmeat to Iran exist if the market was to open.”

“I would urge the Irish government to look at diplomatic missions to Iran and I would also call on the banking sector to provide facilitates for financial transactions between Irish and Iranian interests.”

CHANGES TO BEEF BREEDING INDEXES OF PEDIGREE BULLS HAVE GONE TOO FAR

ICSA president Dermot Kelleher has said ICBF have gone too far with their changes to the beef breeding indexes regarding pedigree bulls. Commenting on the changes which came into effect this week Mr Kelleher said, “ICSA met with ICBF back in early November where we were reassured that no drastic changes would be made; this has turned out to be far from the case however. The changes are proving to have considerable ramifications for farmers participating in the SCEP scheme and indeed for the future of the suckler sector as a whole,” he said.
