Onus on meat factories to act responsibly

19 March 2020

IRELAND - IFA National Livestock Chairman Brendan Golden said factories are paying a base price of €3.65/€3.70 for steers this week and €3.75 for heifers in places.

He said there was a major onus on the meat factories to act responsibly on price in these unprecedented circumstances.

Mr Golden said the factories had put increased safety protocols in place for COVID-19 and it was essential that these were fully observed by all suppliers.
