ICSA CALLS FOR TALKS ON BEEF CRISIS TO RESUME IMMEDIATELY 

4 SEPTEMBER 2019

ICSA president Edmond Phelan has called for talks on the beef crisis to resume urgently and that the unsustainably low beef price must be discussed. “We cannot ignore the elephant in the room any longer which is the fact that current beef price means that every system of beef farming is losing money.”

“Teagasc has confirmed this in the past twenty four hours outlining horrendous losses regardless of efficiency. This is a key reason for protests, and ICSA is now calling on meat factories to walk away from the courts and we are asking protestors to reciprocate by allowing space for real talks to resume.”
