Climate Change Advisory Committee

  • Beef farmers across Ireland will refuse to trade tomorrow to protest against plans to reduce the national herd.

    This week, the Climate Change Advisory Committee recommended cutting cattle numbers by 53 per cent, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    Members of the Beef Plan Movement will refuse to trade tomorrow, as a sign of protest.

    David Whelehan, one of the organisers, says the ban will apply to all co-ops, supermarkets, marts and factories.
