ICSA WELCOMES OMISSION OF LIVESTOCK FARMING FROM INDUSTRIAL EMISSIONS DIRECTIVE

ICSA WELCOMES OMISSION OF LIVESTOCK FARMING FROM INDUSTRIAL EMISSIONS DIRECTIVE

ICSA president Dermot Kelleher has welcomed the omission of ruminant livestock from the final agreement on the EU’s Industrial Emissions Directive (IED). “ICSA has worked tirelessly on this issue with our partners in Farm Europe where we argued that including livestock farming within the scope of the regulation would be a huge mistake. Cattle and sheep farms are not the same as big industrial factories. These efforts have now proved successful with the conclusion of negotiations and a final agreement reached which finally recognises the specificities of agriculture and excludes ruminant livestock.”

TB REGIONALISATION PROPOSAL DEAD IN THE WATER – ICSA

TB REGIONALISATION PROPOSAL DEAD IN THE WATER – ICSA

ICSA Animal Health and Welfare chair Hugh Farrell has made it clear that the regionalisation proposal regarding different TB rules for different regions was flatly rejected by ICSA and other farm organisations at the recent TB forum. “The proposal emanated from the TB Forum’s Scientific Working Group, based on a suggestion from the Department, but ICSA made it clear, both at a bi-lateral meeting – attended by ICSA, Department and scientific group members – and at the TB Forum that it was completely unworkable in an Irish context,” he said.

PGI STATUS MUST BE USED TO REVERSE PRICE DROP OF 70c/kg 

PGI STATUS MUST BE USED TO REVERSE PRICE DROP OF 70c/kg 

ICSA Beef chair Edmund Graham, in welcoming the achievement of the PGI status for Irish Grass Fed Beef, has said that there is now no excuse when Irish beef prices are not above the EU average. “In both 2022 and 2023 to date, the second half of the year has seen Irish prime R3 grade cattle lower than the EU average for young bulls. In recent weeks we have seen a negative differential of over 30c/kg between Irish and EU prices which is a sorry reflection on our ability to market our beef and to deliver a dividend for the efforts by so many farmers in participating in the SBLAS quality assurance programme.
