Are you concerned about the future of the suckler beef sector? What is the most suitable measure to maintain suckler cow numbers?

Earlier this week, Patrick Kent of the ICSA conveyed a sceptical response to the proposal of an early slaughter premium as a mean of maintaining suckler numbers.

The ICSA noted that premia were introduced previously and stressed that during the coupled payments era, beef prices stuck at €2.50/kg.

Kent questioned if a slaughter premium focused on early slaughter is compatible with claiming the sale of grass-fed-beef. He also stressed that the suggested premium would provide unfair competition for live exports to markets including Turkey.

ICSA is also concerned that this proposal would be utilised to support dairy-bred bull beef.
