A sit-in protest by farmers at the Department of Agriculture ended late last night, after a deal was reached between the IFA and the Minister.

The farmers were demonstrating against the practice of 'trimming'.

It involves meat factories trimming animal carcasses before they're weighed - and means farmers get paid less than they should.

The Department of Agriculture has agreed to name and shame meat processors who carry out trim offences.

Affected farmers will also be compensated.
