  • ICMSA call on Minister Smith to signal support for €300 million EU milk fund | I C M S A
    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 and maintained as part of the support measures to deal with volatility and we d like the Minister for Agriculture Fisheries and Food should support the call for its retention concluded Mr McCormack Ends September 7 2010 Pat McCormack 087 7608958 Chairman ICMSA Dairy Committee Real threat to our EU exports says Cahill 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 7 8 9 10 11 12 13

  • ICMSA offer sympthy to the family of latest farm fatality | I C M S A
    Athy said that Mr Phillips tragic death had brought the number of fatal accidents on farms this year to the truly shocking figure of 18 Our mindsets must change and we as farmers must realise that our own safety and wellbeing is paramount There is no point in taking any kind of risks that might result in serious injury or even death We simply have to force ourselves to think act and work safer because these figures are deeply alarming and saddening All our thoughts are with Mr Phillips family this morning stated Mr Cahill Ends 18 August 2010 Queries to Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES GOOD AGRICULTURAL PRACTICE FOR PROTECTION OF WATERS REGULATIONS 200 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 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

  • ICMSA say huge numbers of cattle now being sold ' off ' the official beef grid | I C M S A
    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 cattle off the grid and without the substantial penalties even if meat plants say otherwise In the face of that reality all farmers should now be pressurising their meat plant to either buy off the grid or alternatively that the meat plants revise the grid substantially so that it is simpler and the penalties are less severe concluded Mr Connolly Ends 13 August 2010 Kevin Connolly 087 9381173 Chairman ICMSA Beef Cattle Committee Or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office Co ops Holding Back On Farmers ICMSA say current Beef Grid has undermined confidence 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
