  • Factories Must Address Bull Beef Situation and Set Out Long Term Policy – ICMSA. | I C M S A
    and heifer prices are broadly the same and that farmers are finding it difficult to get bulls killed With the introduction of the beef grid which heavily and unfairly penalised cattle from the dairy herd in particular meat plants and indeed Teagasc advised farmers to look at bull beef production as an option for dairy cattle to overcome the negatives of the beef grid Farmers duly took this advice and are now being penalised for taking this advice The farmer alone is the only person suffering the loss Mr Guinan said that the beef processors simply cannot change policy and expect farmers to take the hit How can farmer have confidence in a sector that sees committed beef producers taking a hit as they are now What needs to happen is that meat plants return to normal practice in terms of killing young bulls at a fair and reasonable price and then the meat plants need to spell out their position on young bull production and inform farmers of the prospects for this sector so that individual farmers can take informed decisions to stick with this business and switch to a different enterprise We cannot allow a situation where farmers trying to get cattle killed see their cattle go out of specification and face further penalties The factories need to resolve this issue immediately and secondly clearly state their long term position on bull beef production as the current situation is undermining the confidence of beef producers concluded Mr Guinan Ends 03 January 2014 Michael Guinan 086 8766851 Chairperson ICMSA Beef Cattle Committee Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office Potential for Milk Price Increase in Early 2014 ICMSA Latest TB stats are encouraging but Department must drive eradication programme Search the site ICMSA President John Comer Newsletter ICMSA

    Dutch dairy quotations are reflecting a stronger market for dairy products in the EU While pressure on milk price was expected early in 2014 due to supply in the major milk producing nations rebounding in the second half of 2013 and lower grain prices but increased demand and replenishment of stocks show that markets continue to thrive and the outlook is certainly positive Dutch dairy quotations have remained strong and are returning 48 cents per litre for Butter SMP mix and 49 6 cpl for WMP before processing costs are excluded Overall EU markets indicators have seen prices for products with Butter SMP WMP holding firm or increasing Further afield to the Southern hemisphere the Global Trade Index has held the gains achieved for a weighted product basket over the last eight months Indeed current information by Rabobank analysts shows market indicators are positive for the first 2 3 quarters of 2014 Therefore further increases in milk price would be merited from processors in the early months of 2014 with an increase in January milk price sending out a positive signal concluded Mr McCormack Ends 03 January 2014 Pat McCormack 087 7608958 Deputy President and Chairperson of ICMSA Dairy Committee Or Paul Smyth 087 9889221 ICMSA Policy Officer On behalf of John Comer President Officers and Staff of the ICMSA wish you and your family a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year Factories Must Address Bull Beef Situation and Set Out Long Term Policy ICMSA 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

    and noted that the 3 9 increase in the Global Dairy Trade auction reflected strong demand for products such as casein butter and SMP while the Dutch dairy quotations are reflecting a stronger market for dairy products in the EU Mr McCormack said ICMSA is particularly encouraged by the fact that Dutch quotations have shown improvements since October when they had dipped slightly and now are at the point that the butter SMP combination is now almost 2 cents per litre higher than the Mid October level Prices have fully recovered and more since then according to ICMSA and they look strong into the first half of 2014 Ends 10 December 2013 Pat McCormack 087 7608958 Deputy President ICMSA Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office Stable Outlook for Beef in 2014 is Welcome News for Farmers ICMSA Reminder to Submit Movement of Organic Fertiliser Record ICMSA 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

  • Stable Outlook for Beef in 2014 is Welcome News for Farmers- ICMSA. | I C M S A
    than supply at 7 107 million tonnes Production in the EU15 is expected to increase by 1 5 in 2014 with demand only rising 0 2 resulting in little movement on average prices across the continent The EU will still be an importer of beef in order to fill the difference between demand and supply Slaughtering s are 8 higher in Ireland 2013 from 2012 despite this increase prices rose higher in 2013 which is very encouraging Also following on from an overall increase in cattle numbers of 6 in 2012 this should lead to higher cattle slaughtering throughput in 2014 Calf births to date in 2013 are below 2012 levels with a substantial decrease 7 in Suckler birth registrations this may slow some of the throughput for 2015 and beyond A further challenge in the next year is to bridge the price gap between Irish and UK prices which have diverged in the last twelve months and must be addressed quickly as well as a fair price returned from processors in Ireland In conclusion Mr Guinan said that with Irish beef numbers expected to increase from 2015 and beyond due to the removal of quotas there will need to be more market outlets available to our processors and the ongoing availability of the live export market The market outlook for beef is positive and the challenge is to ensure that the maximum possible price is returned to farmers Ends 11 December 2013 Michael Guinan 086 8766851 Chairman ICMSA Beef Cattle Committee Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office Teagasc Conference on Weather patterns ICMSA say farmers becoming concerned by the accuracy or otherwise of short term weather forecasting ICMSA predict that milk prices will remain strong for first half of 2014 prices fully recovered and more from October
