Outstanding issues include the 70-day QA single farm residency, 30-month requirements under the Quality Payment Scheme (QPS) and the four-movement rule.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed has agreed to meet beef industry stakeholders in Backweston at 10am this morning.

Outstanding issues include the 70-day QA single farm residency, 30-month requirements under the Quality Payment Scheme (QPS) and the four-movement rule.

Yesterday’s discussions were centred around QPS grid, in-spec bonus requirements, carcase classification, insurance market transparency, beef price index, producer organisations, and live exports.

Agreements

It was agreed that Bord Bia will develop a beef market price index model; parties agreed on the requirement for an independent grocery regulator.

The Department has agreed to introduce an appeal system for carcase classification in meat plants where there is manual grading only.

Meat Industry Ireland confirmed that farmers can opt-out of paying insurance in factories.

Teagasc is set to review the price differentials on the grid in the short-term and undertake a full review in the longer-term.

Recognising the need for greater transparency along the beef supply chain, an independent study of price composition along the supply chain will be commissioned by DAFM.
