ICMSA have continued its promotion of its proposed Sustainable Beef Production Scheme through what was described as a very positive meeting with Minister Creed last week to discuss the proposal being supported by the state’s specialist dairy farmer organisation.

  Emphasising that their scheme addresses a range of challenges across the spectrum, ICMSA President Pat McCormack said that much thought had gone into it and the initial responses have been “hugely positive”.

  “We designed the scheme and have based our proposal on the basis that we have to tackle a multitude of issues including economic volatility in the livestock sector, social sustainability, animal welfare and climate change” said Mr. McCormack.
