This morning.

Agriculture House, Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

Farmers blocking Cormac Healy from Meat Industry Ireland from arriving at a new Beef Task Force who met for the first time this morning at the Department of Agriculture to examine the future of the beef industry in Ireland.

The task force was agreed to by beef farmers and organisations, and representatives of the beef processing sector last month following weeks of protests.

          there’s a big difference between curves and looking like you ate all the pies,
          I know that’s not a popular stance in Ireland,

            for example I put four cream in my tea, if I’m not careful I’ll look like I put double cream in my tea and I’ll know why,
            just a fact

            You should be dragged out into the car park and whipped Janet- but you’d probably like that so- a good stern talking too- yes.

      like anything it depends on the chef @Pee

      a Côte de boeuf + your shrimp properly pan seared by the right hands with a rosemary/thyme/seasoned butter is an unbeatable marriage imho

            i’d never come across that term until a couple of months ago (via An Omelette and a Glass of Wine, which i heartily recommend). up until then, i’d got by with moist.

          ah Janet

    In fairness to beef producers- they are probably the only industry in Ireland who are told how much they can produce and how much they can charge- and when that changes, they are the last to know.

    But how or when did an Island like Ireland become so exclusively focused on the raising of animals for beef or diary?

    At what point did it become profitable to buy every single inch of land and turn it into an Irish version of Texas?

    The only trees left are hawthorn and that is because of the fairies- mystical not gay obviously.

  2. Truth in the News

    Meat Industry Ireland a front for Larry Goodman and Co, whats MII connection
    with IBEC, the appointment of Micheal Dowling as Chairman of the Beef Task
    Force needs to be overturned, as what did he ever do in his capacity as Secretary
    of the Dept of Agriculture to tackle the Beef Processing Monopoly or indeed
    the owing of Factory Type Feed Lots by the processors, the extensive business
    empires amassed by the Beef Barons on the backs of the farmers need to
    be looked at also
