ICSA president Patrick Kent has warned that today’s confirmation of a BSE case in Louth must not be used as an excuse to drive down price.

“Farmers have seen a welcome tightening of prices in recent days, and meat processors cannot use this result, an isolated one-off case, as a stick to hammer farmers with,” he said.

“It is likely that the case will have little or no impact on Irish exports, and we don’t expect to see any impact on farmgate prices either.”
