IFA calls on factories to increase the price being given to farmers for beef

The IFA is calling on the factories to increase the price being given to farmers for beef. 

The President of the Association, Galway based farmer Joe Healy has called for a strong beef increase from the factories, saying there was a full clear out of retail beef sales over the holiday period and factories are very anxious for cattle again in the New Year. He said a significant price increase is well justified based on strong demand and improved market and exchange rate returns.
