Farmers are continuing their protests outside meat factories, despite a High Court injunction banning blockades at some sites.

The unofficial protests have been ongoing since Monday, after talks aimed at resolving the ongoing row over beef prices broke down.

Dawn Meats, ABP, Slaney Meats and Kepak have been granted the orders, but some farmers are refusing to leave until they get better prices for their animals.

Up to 30 farmers are protesting outside Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis this morning and they are calling on farmers and the business community to get behind their plea and support their cause.

Farmers told Midwest News this morning that their main reason for protesting stands tall, which is a better price for their cattle.

Meanwhile, Pat O'Toole from the Irish Farmers Journal says the only way this can be resolved is if both sides get back to the negotiating table.
