ICSA Beef Chairman Edmond Phelan has called on Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney to engage with his Russian counterpart to resolve the ban on offal products.

“We need to see this resolved as soon as possible,” said Mr. Phelan. However, he noted that farmers had seen little benefit from the increased demand for fifth quarter products in recent times so he suggested that the factories could not expect to cut what they had not given in the first place.

ICSA Tillage chair Gavin Carberry has said Minister McConalogue must put money on the table if the decline in the area under tillage is to be reversed. “The tillage sector is in dire need of a significant and multi-year financial boost which must be delivered if the Department are serious about meeting the target of increasing the tillage area to 400,000ha by 2030 as part of the Climate Action Plan,” he said.
