Michael Creed said ( about Joe Healy ) : "I am pleased to see Irish retailers engaging constructively with the work of the taskforce, as it is imperative that mutually beneficial relationships across the supply chain are maintained and developed to secure the future of Irish beef”. The Teagasc review of the grid showed there was little evidence for a change in the differentials that were introduced over 10 years ago. A number of farmer representatives expressed an interest in moving to a simpler payment system. Department of Agriculture carcase classification experts poured cold water on the introduction of an appeals process for animals graded mechanically. Such a process is available for manually graded carcases but under Irish legislation a machine's grade is final. It was suggested that farmers could be compensated without the grade being changed while others called for closer monitoring of the system to flag problems more rapidly. Price. With beef price running around €3.60/kg, many farmers were hoping for movement. IFA president Joe Healy said beef prices had to be increased and could not continue at loss-making levels.

It has been a success in channelling €240 million into vital investments to promote the sustainable growth of our seafood sector and will leave a lasting legacy of enhanced sustainability, profitability, competitiveness and enhanced value. We are now facing into a new Programme period starting in 2021 and while many of the challenges and opportunities facing our seafood sector will continue to be relevant for the future programme, there will also undoubtedly be some new and changed investment priorities. Adapting our seafood sector to the changed landscape that Brexit will bring will be a vital consideration. Climate change is a top priority for Government and we must consider what the new Programme will contribute to Ireland’s response. Preservation of marine biodiversity and Clean Oceans and ensuring the sustainability of our fish stocks will continue to be top priorities. And we must continue to enhance the competitiveness, value and productivity of our sector through innovation, training, and targeted capital investment. In this initial public consultation, I am asking our stakeholders to share their views on how we should address these and other relevant issues in our new programme, in what ways we should intervene, and how should we prioritise and get the right balance in distributing the available funds” External link
