Negotiations among all sides in the beef dispute will resume later this morning.
Meat Industry Ireland, the Irish Farmers Association and the Beef Plan Movement are among those attending the talks in Celbridge, county Kildare.
It's after beef farmers, members of the Beef Plan Movement, held pickets earlier this month at meat plants across the country, including Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis, over the low prices they are securing for their animals from the factories.
IFA President Joe Healy says for farmers it’s all about price. He said they are not allowed to talk about prices at the meeting due to competition authority law, but he told Midwest News today that prices have not increased since last week’s meeting in Kildare among all involved.
