Beef trade: Factories move to work through cattle backlog


After weeks of protests, all farmer-led protests outside the country’s meat processors have officially stood down.

After 48 hours of deliberation between the remaining protesters and various mediators, Liffey Meats in Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan, Liffey Meats in Ballinasloe, Co. Galway, and ABP Clones, Co. Monaghan, were the last remaining protests to stand down on Sunday night, September 22.

Beef processing recommenced at some sites yesterday, Monday, September 23 – with factories keen to maximise throughput and return to full processing capacity. All plants are expected to be fully operational this week.
