Therefore the more that farmers supply the more the main lobby group for farmers earn. Is it just me or is it a bit ironic that there has been a massive push towards increasing volumes of production, particularly in milk?
Remember all the the talk of 'Liquid Gold' at the start of this year, it hasn't quite worked out, yet the drum sounded a very loud beat from certain quarters that all would be magnificent. Farmers are now committed financially and have to plough on regardless. We deserve a representative group that protects our real interests, not the interests of Ireland Food Inc.
I wonder how many farmers membership fees does it take to pay the remuneration of Assistant General Secretary & Director of Operations at the IFA?
