NEWS RELEASE / PHOTO OP

4 OCTOBER 2018

ICSA is to mount a protest at ABP Clones as processors continue to hammer beef farmers with price cuts. The protest will take place tomorrow (Friday 5 October) from 7am, ABP Clones, Co Monaghan.

ICSA beef chairman Edmund Graham said, “ICSA did not attend the Beef Forum this week due to the lack of solidarity shown by processors to beef producers. Never has this lack of solidarity been more evident than in the last few weeks.”

“Farmers are on their knees, anger is mounting and factories have refused to engage with us in a meaningful way at the roundtable.”
