Mayo Senator Rose-Conway Walsh is adding her voice to calls for the immediate reconvening of the Joint Oireachtas Agriculture Committee.

The Sinn Fein Senator says it's blatantly obvious that the current pricing model for beef is not working for farmers, and says the situation cannot be allowed to continue.

Sinn Fein has launched a new Mandatory Beef Price Transparency Bill, which she says would provide much-needed transparency to Irish farmers regarding beef prices, through the establishment of a beef market observatory which would report on cattle prices on a daily basis.

Senator Conway-Walsh says it's unacceptable that the substantive issue of pricing was not discussed at the last round of talks, and says it's important that Minister Michael Creed reconvenes talks between the stakeholders in the beef sector as a matter of urgency.
