The Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association (INHFA) have called on the Government to ensure that all farmers are catered for in this year’s budget citing lack of access to critical schemes as a major issue for many of their members.

In discussing this year’s budget proposals Vincent Roddy of the INHFA stated “how their proposals can deliver for almost 100,000 farmers through short and medium term interventions for the suckler and sheep sectors.

With GLAS being rolled over for the coming year the INHFA have requested that up to €100m be made available for a one year Agri-environmental scheme to accommodate the many farmers currently frozen out of GLAS and the new REAP.

Mr. Roddy has been giving more details to Midwest Radio’s Michael D McAndrew as to what they are requesting from the upcoming budget.
