ICSA Welcomes €6 Million Commitment To Developing Suckler Brand

The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmer’s Association has welcomed increased funding for the suckler brand.

The government’s Beef Taskforce has committed to providing 6 million euro in funding for developing a premium suckler brand alongside grass fed PGI.

The ICSA welcomes the progress this provides but would have preferred an exclusively suckler based PGI.


ICSA General Secretary and Cratloe farmer Eddie Punch says suckler beef should be sold as a premium.
