The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association has welcomed the news that vehicles transporting fodder will receive a special derogation under recent height restriction legislation.

ICSA president Patrick Kent said, “It was critically important that loads of fodder were not subject to the new height restrictions because the cost implications would be far too severe. Minister Varadkar has taken the common-sense approach here and I very much welcome the exemption.”

“I commend Martin Heydon TD for bringing forward the proposal to create the exemption for these types of loads.”

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.
