Quotes

"Farmers have already seen €60m taken from their bottom lineline upup to the end of July this year through milk price reductions at a time of unprecedented investment at farm level and the links further up the chain will now have to start taking some of the pain. That's what Lakelands have done to a certain extent and that's why it should be acknowledged" he said
"It doesn't go with good farming and increased production"
"The analysis undertaken by the IFA highlights the importance of a strong agriculture sector in each county, providing employment and generating output not just in farming itself but in the thousands of regionally based jobs dependent on and linked to the sector”."
Speaking following his appointment Mr Keane said: "It’s a challenging time at the moment for all cattle producers, facing pressures from the market place and high costs. However the 2013 e-Profit monitor analysis for 2013 shows that achieving higher levels of technical performance is the best way for individual farmers to protect their incomes."
