Mr McCormack said : “We think that the average costs per cow will increase by approximately €150 and in terms of costs per litre, the figure could increase by over 2.5cpl from 2020 to 2022. For costs per hectare, we are working on the basis that this will go up over €200,” “These are extremely significant increases and they support our argument that on both milk and, very particularly, beef, any kind of increases in farmer prices has to be set against the kind of runaway inflation we are seeing in inputs, particularly fertiliser, feed, fuel and energy” External link

Mr McCormack said ( about Association ) : “Though there are obvious differences with other buy-outs and various mergers, there’s enough in common to justify our Association taking its standard attitude and that is to ask what is the long-term interests of the farmer-suppliers. That’s our starting point and our finishing point. With due respect to both the PLC and Glanbia Ireland, we will consider this in terms of how it affects the farmers. It’s not as simple as giving the farmers the room to decide their own milk price, we have seen over in the UK how a deceptively simple slogan like ‘Taking Back Control’ is actually a much more complex proposition than seemed at the time. There will be arguments for and arguments against and ICMSA will decide on a position after carefully looking at both” External link

Mr McCormack said : “The central point that has to be understood and accepted is that the only people actually conceding a right here are the landowners. If we move from that realisation forward then we understand that the response to dealing with possible claims arising from their concession of that right – access to their land – has to be one that meets the requirements of the landowners, first and foremost, and is fair to that group. "After that, we can judge whether it addresses the concerns of the lawyers and the local authorities. ICMSA emphatically rejects the idea that there is any parity of consideration here: the people giving access to their property have to be absolutely satisfied with any arrangements and only then, and after that, should we be seeking the opinions of the other parties to the question. "I can save everyone some time and work here by assuring them that – just speaking for farmer-landowners – we will never accept a plan for granting access to our land that does not remove us absolutely from even being the subject of a claim. "Access to our land for the purposes of hiking, walking or any other forms of pastime should only be considered on the basis that any claim arising from individuals is strictly a matter between parties other than the landowner who gave access to his or her land. "ICMSA will resist any attempts to make the landowner any part of any claims arising from a process that has had the state and various bodies pressurising farmers to give access to our land to others for the purposes of their leisure. "As far as we are concerned – and as far as any reasonable interpretation would be concerned – in those circumstances any claim is exclusively a matter between the state and the individual claimant – and just them” External link

That’s our starting point and our finishing point. With due respect to both the PLC and Glanbia Ireland, we will consider this in terms of how it affects the farmers. It’s not as simple as giving the farmers the room to decide their own milk price, we have seen over in the UK how a deceptively simple slogan like ‘Taking Back Control’ is actually a much more complex proposition than seemed at the time. There will be arguments for and arguments against and ICMSA will decide on a position after carefully looking at both” External link

CAP is an agricultural policy and we are in grave danger of turning it into a complex and unworkable grand eco strategy that it was never designed to be. It was designed for farming and food and Minister McConalogue’s responsibility is to ensure that CAP works for farmers, protects their incomes, and delivers for the wider food-based rural economy that they make work,” External link

"That review should be concentrated on two things: remedying the year-on-year losses inflicted on farmers by the grid since it was introduced, and identifying already obvious consumer trends in beef consumption and pulling back from those in terms of processing and producing beef.

Mr McCormack said : “The central point that has to be understood and accepted is that the only people actually conceding a right here are the landowners. If we move from that realisation forward then we understand that the response to dealing with possible claims arising from their concession of that right – access to their land – has to be one that meets the requirements of the landowners, first and foremost, and is fair to that group. "After that, we can judge whether it addresses the concerns of the lawyers and the local authorities. ICMSA emphatically rejects the idea that there is any parity of consideration here: the people giving access to their property have to be absolutely satisfied with any arrangements and only then, and after that, should we be seeking the opinions of the other parties to the question. "I can save everyone some time and work here by assuring them that – just speaking for farmer-landowners – we will never accept a plan for granting access to our land that does not remove us absolutely from even being the subject of a claim. "Access to our land for the purposes of hiking, walking or any other forms of pastime should only be considered on the basis that any claim arising from individuals is strictly a matter between parties other than the landowner who gave access to his or her land. "ICMSA will resist any attempts to make the landowner any part of any claims arising from a process that has had the state and various bodies pressurising farmers to give access to our land to others for the purposes of their leisure. "As far as we are concerned – and as far as any reasonable interpretation would be concerned – in those circumstances any claim is exclusively a matter between the state and the individual claimant – and just them” External link
