ICSA TO PROTEST LOW SHEEP PRICES

19 JANUARY 2017

ICSA sheep chairman John Brooks has said that members of the ICSA sheep committee will stage a protest tomorrow (January 20) at the ICM plant in Navan. “Factories are purposely keeping quotes down at €4.75 and imposing ever tighter weight limits. We’re in a situation where farmers are losing money due to some unscrupulous practices by processors. This can no longer be tolerated”, said Mr Brooks.

The protest will begin at 12pm.
