The Beef Market Taskforce is due to meet next week, but it must deliver real results for farmers and not just end up as a talking shop.

That's according to the President of the Irish Cattle & Sheep Farmers Association Edmond Phelan.

It's just over two weeks since farmers ended their protests outside a number of meat factories- including Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis - but Mr Phelan claims there's been no improvement in the prices they're getting for their cattle.

The ICSA is calling for transparency over how much of the final retail prices is delivered to farmers, a completion of the review of the grid, full engagement by the retail trade and the appointment of a regulator.
