Clare’s Beef Plan Chair On What They Need From Next Round Of Beef Talks

Beef talks are back up and running once again today with no end in sight so far to the crisis facing the beef sector.

The Agriculture Minister Michael Creed, Meat Industry Ireland and the major farming organisations are involved, with the talks expected to continue into the wee hours.

For farmers, the issue of price still needs to be discussed – despite this not being on the table in the previous rounds.


They also want retailers to come around the table though, so far, the Minister has ruled that out.

Clare Chair of the Beef Plan Movement Joseph Woulfe is on this week’s podcast (from 12:00) to share what he wants to see emerge from the talks today.

Also on this week’s episode is Teagasc’s Aidan Bugler, with advice on dairying (from 1:00).
