“A further setback for Irish beef farmers” Martin Kenny TD says after news breaks of Turkey suspending live imports.

The news of Turkey suspending all live imports of cattle in a bid to protect domestic farmers has been described as a further setback for Irish beef farmers by Sinn Féin TD, Martin Kenny.

The news broke yesterday, January 15th, with Martin Kenny noting that live exports are a “very important” to the Irish beef sector.

"Live exports is a very important part of the Irish beef sector and it will be a huge loss to farmers bringing cattle to market.” he said.

"There will be a noticeable loss of buyers for the export market around rings in markets up and down the country.”

Mr Kenny then called on Minister Creed to develop more export markets, to ensure the protection of Irish farmers with Brexit impending.

"I have previously called on the Minister to develop more export markets to ensure there is some competition for Irish meat factory cartel.” Kenny TD said.

"I will be raising this again with the Minister as action needs to be taken to ensure Irish beef farmers are protected especially with Brexit coming down the tracks." He concluded.
