“With beef prices still up to 40c/kg less than this week last year, the current prices for beef are not sustainable for farmers.”

Beef Plan Movement is calling on all farmers to unite for a “peaceful rally” at the Shearwater Hotel in Ballinasloe on Thursday (May 9th) at 6 pm.

Releasing a statement, Eoin Donnelly – Chairperson of BPM West Region – said: “Beef Plan Movement intends to use this peaceful rally to highlight the ongoing exploitation of suckler and beef farmers.”

“With beef prices still up to 40c/kg less than this week last year, the current prices for beef are not sustainable for farmers.” he added.

Increase a farmer's share of retail price

The group is asking processors and retailers to collectively increase the farmer's share of retail price “to prevent the certain demise of the suckler industry”.

“Please support this Beef Plan Movement peaceful rally and show that farmers want this exploitation to be stopped.” the statement concluded.
