There is a call for the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed to allocate a dedicated budget to farmers to help them through the fodder crisis.

IFA President Joe Healy is making the call, as Smart Farming hosts a seminar today on ways to reduce farm bills and enhance the environment.

He says the Minister needs to make a significant fund available towards an Early Warning System that operates locally to help farmers before any welfare problems emerge.

Joe Healy says things are pretty bleak for farmers across the country at present.
