In Roscommon sheep farmer stumbled on sheep imports from Northern Ireland, where he claims to see the local farmers are fighting to keep their slaughtered lambs with factories.

Irish cattle and sheep Association Chairman of farmers (x) sheep John Brooks said that sheep farmers across the country are fighting to keep their cut of the lambs, with factories fully booked.

“We are seeing a large bandwidth, the number of sheep, however, questions about the origin of the sheep arise.”

According to Brooks the x was to receive reports of additional quantities of the lamb, coming down from Northern Ireland for slaughter in the South.

The “sheep from abroad has always been brought here, but in large quantities get out of hand.

“They are too indirect influence with the farmers in the South had difficulties in getting their own killed.

“As far as we can see, this is just another ploy to keep prices down at a time when farmers are suffering due to the costs of drought.

Brooks said the increase in imports again raises the issues of marking and tracing of risks in Ireland, origin green and quality assurance systems.
