  • ICMSA say cuts to capital budget will jeopardise forestry planting targets : I C M S A : http://icmsa.ie
    Donnell said that these cuts will pose problems in the sector affecting both planting targets and thinning operations He also pointed out that this move is a serious blow to the industry at a time when wood prices paid to timber growers have more than doubled over the last six months and when even at these prices the industry cannot meet the demand for its output with wood being imported

  • Real threat to our EU exports says Cahill : I C M S A : http://icmsa.ie
    law seemed to be headed Mr Cahill said our attentions should focus on the so called block exemption as currently being debated which would allow producers and processors to agree arrangements for a specified region or country on milk production and price This would give a virtual monopoly and make it extremely difficult for outside suppliers like ourselves to get in and stay in these markets stated the ICMSA President We met ICOS last week to discuss the dangers we see looming up on the block exemptions that looks likely to be permitted under the new legislation The fact of the matter are that the block exemption will amount to powers of veto being given to regional or national groups of producers and it is naïve in the extreme to imagine that for instance that power would not be exercised by groups of French farmers and dairies in regions like Brittany and Normandy as well as regions of Germany This will have serious implications for our sector where we export massive proportions of our total product and we cannot afford to have whole regions being ruled out to us by the exercise of this block exemption stated Mr Cahill It

  • ICMSA call on Minister Smith to signal support for €300 million EU milk fund : I C M S A : http://icmsa.ie
    fund as part of the EU Budget considerations for 2011 according to Mr Pat McCormack Chairperson of ICMSA s Dairy Committee In welcoming the proposal from the Committee Mr McCormack said that the year 2009 will live long in the memory of dairy farmers and in the aftermath of that disastrous year it is absolutely essential that the policymakers at EU level maintain the maximum number of support measures for dairy farmers that might allay the worst effects of that kind of destructive volatility While the milk fund was tiny relative to the losses suffered by dairy farmers in 2009 it is still important that it is maintained As of now Mr McCormack said the dairy policy being pursued by the EU will not address volatility and the proposals from the High Level Group are unlikely to lead to any positive developments for dairy farmers The Dairy Committee Chairman pointed out that farmers are waiting in anticipation on the legislative proposals for the dairy sector to be announced before Christmas But he said that in advance of this it is essential that every support measure possible was introduced and utilised It is important that the 300m milk is set up

  • ICMSA say huge numbers of cattle now being sold ' off ' the official beef grid : I C M S A : http://icmsa.ie
    being sold off the grid according to Mr Kevin Connolly Chairperson of ICMSA s Beef and Cattle Committee The Beef committee chairman said that since its introduction last December it was and is quite clear that the vast majority of farmers are totally opposed to the grid system because they know themselves that they are losing money under the system which they believe is deliberately designed to confuse and over complicate and has left them in a situation where they cannot estimate what price they will receive for cattle leaving their yard As Mr Connolly pointed out not even meat plant agents are able to tell a farmer with any degree of accuracy what grid box their cattle will fit into What kind of system is that Farmer opposition Mr Connolly said has not waned over time and it is about time that the meat plants addressed the valid concerns of farmers in relation to the grid before more farmers simply walk away from fattening cattle which is a crucial industry for rural Ireland and the wider economy Based on reports from ICMSA members around the country it is now quite clear that many farmers are succeeding in selling their

  • Co-ops Holding Back On Farmers : I C M S A : http://icmsa.ie
    Board on account price ICMSA estimates that Co ops underpaid farmers to the tune of 2 5 cents per litre which is equivalent to 17m or about 850 per dairy farmer at a time when many dairy farmers are still trying to clear the debts left behind from 2009 both with banks Co ops and other input suppliers ICMSA also believes that the Irish Dairy Board should be paying a higher price for butter at this time given market conditions and the fact that Dutch quotations for butter are over 1 7 cents per litre higher than the Irish Dairy Board price The Irish Dairy Board is the marketing arm for Irish dairy farmers and farmers are insisting that the benefits of the IDB must be fully reflected in milk price The reality of the marketplace at present is that while the market did weaken slightly in July for powders there are signs of improvement in the latest Dutch Dairy quotations with SMP up 30 per tonne while butter prices have remained very stable at a price substantially above what the Irish Dairy Board is paying at present Based on current returns from the Irish Dairy Board ICMSA estimate that
