Beef factories rejected the appeals of ICMSA, to change their required weight limit for cows and related penalties.

Cormac Healy of meat industry Ireland (MII) has indicated that 272kg (600 lbs) weight cut-off was the requirement of the market for more than 25 years.

“Our prices are the cows spend at the top end of the EU. However, under-prepared, or extreme dairy cows cross will always struggle with the point of view of satisfaction of the Specification market and achieve a higher price,” Mr. Healy said.

Chair of the ICMSA livestock, des Morrison, accused of hammering plants to farmers at prices the cow.

While €3/kg, calculated for p-grade cows with flesh of cows under the weight limit of 272kg was fined, Mr. Morrison pointed out.

The Ministry of agriculture indicated that as low as 112c/kg was recently paid for the cows, he explained.

“Sanctions were imposed on some of these cows, for absolutely no reason, given the current circumstances. Loyal suppliers for many years figachat prices and in particular on the specifications,” said Mr. Morrison.

In addition, he raised the issue of the cost of the fifth quarter. “I interviewed representatives of the plant on the value of the fifth quarter and hide. Did not give me any information.
