Farmers are continuing to protest outside Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis this morning.
The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine has agreed to invite Minister Michael Creed and Michael Dowling, the independent talks chairman, to a meeting of the committee to discuss the dispute.
The committee has also called for the resumption of talks between the parties, without preconditions, to be reinstated as quickly as possible.
The committee said the talks must include retailers.
Ballinrobe based Fianna Fail Councillor Damien Ryan says consultation is the only way forward to solve this dispute.
Cllr. Ryan say there is too much regulation and bureaucracy in place in the beef sector.
