The IFA claims a new trade deal between the US and the EU is another huge blow to Irish farming.

 

Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed an agreement that will allow the States to export a lot more beef to Europe.

 

It follows the Mercosur deal, which would give South America much more access to the market also.

 

Both agreements have to be approved by the European Parliament - but IFA President Joe Healy is hitting out.

 

“We export 90% of the meat we produce in Ireland, 95% of that goes either into the U.K or Europe. So, any deal that means more meat coming into Europe is bad for Ireland,” said Mr Healy.
