The Irish Farmer's Association says farmers are tired of being kicked around and scape-goated when it comes to climate action.

It is holding an event today in an effort to address some of the issues.

The 'Climate Action in Agriculture - A Balanced Approach' event takes place at the RCPI in Dublin this afternoon.

President of the Irish Farmer's Association, Galway based, Joe Healy says Irish farmers are the most carbon efficient in the world.

However, environmental group An Taisce says Irish beef and dairy is nowhere near as environmentally friendly as the IFA maintains.

John Gibbons from the organisation says farmers are importing vast amounts of feed from overseas because there isn't enough grass.
