Outside Musgraves’ central distribution centre in Kilcock, Co Kildare this morning
Members of the Irish Farmers’ Association began to hold their fourth protest over beef prices at 7.00am, outside Musgraves’ central distribution centre in Kilcock, Co Kildare.
Musgraves owns Centra and SuperValu.
Sylvester Phelan, of Agriland, reports:
Beef farmers should not accept the current beef price on offer from the factories and demand a lot more, IFA president Joe Healy said at the picket.
Once again, the protest will last 12 hours and follows similar action at the Tesco central distribution centre in Dublin yesterday and the Aldi and Lidl CDCs last week.
