Half a million lambs are being imported into the Republic of Ireland for slaughter every year.

That’s according to figures obtained by ICSA Sheep Chairman Sean McNamara who has called on the Agriculture Minister to address the issue of sheep imports as a matter of urgency.

Mr. McNamara says it’s no wonder that Irish Sheep famers have a hard time selling their stock or getting a fair price.

He is calling on the Department of Agriculture to provide weekly reports on the number of lambs imported and from where.
