“Farmers need to decide if they want to stand together once and for all”, Michael Fitzmaurice.

Michael Fitzmaurice T.D. was in attendance at the recent Beef Plan group meeting in Roscommon mart and spoke passionately about the troubles facing Ireland’s beef farmers.

The meeting was held yesterday, Wednesday November 7th, with a reported 500 farmers in attendance. The Beef Plan group was set up with the aim to retain control of beef from birth to slaughter and beyond; return as a minimum, the cost of production plus a margin and reclaim respect with the beef industry

There were numerous committee members speaking on the night, though it was T.D. Michael Fitzmaurice who stole the show with a passionate speech calling all farmers to stick together in this battle for better prices.
