Minister Appeals To Farmers To End Meat Factory Protests

The Minister for Agriculture has written an open letter to protesting beef farmers asking them to end their blockades at meat factories.


It's after farming organisations widely supported recommendations made at the weekend following talks between all sides.
Micheal Creed says farmers voices have been heard 'loud and clear', but that nobody got everything they wanted from the talks.
He says while many farmers simply wanted an immediate price increase, it was not legally possible to have that option on the table.
