Farmers are in their fourth day of protest outside Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis.

Beef Plan Movement members have been protesting at a number of factories - including Ballyhaunis since Monday - over plans to cut the suckler cow herd by half and prices being by the factories.

Councillor’s at yesterday’s Castlebar Municipal District Meeting agreed to support the beef plan movement.

Independent Councillor Michael Kilcoyne says prices have slumped so much in the beef industry that farmers are losing up to €4 million euro in a week.
