  • ICMSA meet Coveney on CAP Rural Development Programme | I C M S A
    and the scheme must be relevant to all farm types I am particularly concerned that the necessary funding will be in place to allow all farmers who wish to join to do so in 2014 and we re calling on the Minister to secure the necessary funding Many farmers who participated in REPS over many years are excluded from an agri environment scheme at present and they must be allowed join this scheme in 2014 In relation to the on farm investment schemes with quota abolition in April 2015 there will be a significant investment requirement on farms over the next year and it is essentially that this scheme opens as soon as possible with a speedy approval process so that farmers can complete works over winter 2014 It s already very clear that there will be a high demand for this scheme during this period so the funding of this scheme should be frontloaded so that farmers who want to carry out investments in the 2014 15 period will get approval to do so This is a hugely important issue that the Minister must address said Mr Comer In relation to the Knowledge Transfer Scheme Mr Comer said the proposal that dairy farmers who are not in a position to expand would be in the priority two category was neither fair nor logical and ICMSA again called on the Minister to address this matter The CAP Rural Development Programme is a hugely important initiative for farmers but the terms and conditions need to be got right early approval is required and the Minister should set a target of having all these scheme up and running by early Autumn so that they can operate to their maximum effectiveness concluded Mr Comer 9 May 2014 John Comer 087 2057846 President ICMSA

  • ICMSA welcome Dept of Finance decision on CGT exemption for farmers forced to dispose of SFP entitlements after CAP changes – “fairness deserves to be acknowledged” says John Comer | I C M S A
    result of changes introduced under the new EU CAP regime Mr Comer said that the exemption announced by Minister Noonan was no more than a reasonable recognition of the realities of the anomaly thrown up by the new CAP but he noted that the Government had demonstrated a fairness which deserved to be acknowledged These farmers had found themselves with potential liabilities due to no fault of their own and decisions by others and it was only right that these individuals were not penalised on the double concluded Mr Comer Ends 1 May 2014 John Comer 087 2057846 President ICMSA Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office CEDRA report praised but Comer remains convinced that food production the most important tool in rural economy ICMSA meet Coveney on CAP Rural Development Programme Search the site ICMSA President John Comer Newsletter ICMSA Winter 2015 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn Newsletter 2015 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2015 ICMSA Winter 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Spring 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2013 Newsletter ICMSA Summer Newsletter 2013 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2013 Presidents Speech AGM Read more Login Events Calendar January 2016 Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun 1 2 3 4 5 6

  • CEDRA report praised but Comer remains convinced that food production “the most important tool” in rural economy | I C M S A
    sustainable production and income then the whole rural economy will move upwards in tandem That s why when we see recommendations about allocations of EU Rural development funding outside the farm gate that would actually result in a cut to farm schemes we have to express disagreement We know for a fact that increasing the prosperity of family farms is the most tried and trusted way of increasing the prosperity of our rural economy overall And while we re happy to acknowledge the fact that not everyone living in rural Ireland is involved in farming or food production we would still feel that it must be recognised as the economic prime mover in our countryside We support anything that helps energise our rural areas but we have to guard against reinventing the wheel and not seeing that perhaps the most important tool to doing that is right there in the shape of our family farms we re not saying that it s the only tool but we are saying that it is still the most important one The best way of developing a healthy rural economy is developing and helping our family farm system go forward and prosper We d be very interested for instance in how this report fits in with the ambitions and targets set out in Food Harvest 2020 because there isn t a single mention of that national target that we could find said Mr Comer Ends 22 April 2014 John Comer 087 2057846 President ICMSA Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office ICMSA acknowledge Minister Coveney s moves to engage with beef price crisis call for Beef Market Monitoring Agency similar to that set up by EU for dairy markets ICMSA welcome Dept of Finance decision on CGT exemption for farmers forced to dispose

  • ICMSA acknowledge Minister Coveney’s moves to ‘engage’ with beef price crisis – call for Beef Market Monitoring Agency similar to that set up by EU for dairy markets | I C M S A
    beef would have been the setting up of a Beef Market Monitoring Agency of a type similar to that announced by the EU last year for the dairy markets Mr Comer said that it was longer acceptable or sensible for beef suppliers to be left completely at the whim of the factories processors and retailers in terms of price and specifications and it was vital for all parties including ultimately the beef factories themselves that some degree of predictability and viability was restored to the business of finishing cattle Mr Comer said that the present system where farmers invested up to three years in producing cattle only to be told at the last minute that all the factory specifications had changed and their three years work was down the drain was utterly unfair and was going to inevitably wreck beef production in Ireland The ICMSA President said that the remit of the Dairy Market Monitoring Agency was precisely this kind of look ahead to where supply and demand conditions might change in a way that would radically alter price and then the recommendation of policies that would ameliorate those drastic price swings It was now very obvious according to the ICMSA President that a similar type of agency was needed to look at the Irish and wider EU beef markets into which a huge portion of our beef is exported with the remit of smoothing out the factory to farmer price and moving it onto a viable basis that greatly educed insofar as it s possible the kind of utterly destructive prices to beef farmers that we had seen in this state since before Christmas Ends 17 April 2014 John Comer 087 2057846 President ICMSA Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office ICMSA Welcome AIB s Vote of Confidence

  • Climate Change Report – Farmers warn against being ‘bounced’ into disproportionately damaging emissions reduction programme | I C M S A
    to feel the effects first it was critical that the report did not become some form of stick with which our hugely important farming and agri export sector was going to be beaten He said that the same science that measured the progress of climate change must now be used to argue that those states that could produce food with the least environmental impact should be those states where food production was supported In that context it was crucial to note that food production in this country was proportionally much less environmentally damaging than in almost any other EU Member State while the value of the food produced in export terms was proportionately more important Against that background Mr Comer said it was vital that the Irish Government insisted that any kind of equity of contribution in emissions reduction introduced by the EU Commission took account of the relative cost of food production in different states as well as the relative importance of that food production to the state Ireland must not permit itself to be bounced into an across the board crude emissions reduction system that nullified the our scientifically proven advantages in food production for the sake of some questionable definition of equity of contribution which was regrettably the direction the latest EU Commission proposals seemed to be taking Ends 31 March 2014 John Comer 087 2057846 President ICMSA Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office ARE YOU IRELAND S TOP FARMING FAMILY ICMSA Welcome AIB s Vote of Confidence in Agri Sector Search the site ICMSA President John Comer Newsletter ICMSA Winter 2015 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn Newsletter 2015 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2015 ICMSA Winter 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Spring 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2013 Newsletter ICMSA Summer Newsletter 2013 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2013
