The Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association (INHFA) are to hold a protest to highlight the need for a fodder aid scheme that will deliver for farmers who are experiencing fodder shortages.

Gerry Loftus of the INHFA outlined how the Minister has ignored the principal recommendation of the stakeholders committee which was for a meal voucher.

While Mr. Loftus said the transport subsidy “was also recommended”, he said its restrictive nature has ensured it will “not deliver for most farmers”.

The INHFA decision which was taken by its national council, will involve a protest at the Department of Agriculture Offices in Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim on Monday morning at 10.30am.
