Northern Ireland Farm Groups are gathering

PRESS RELEASE

 

Seeking a joint approach to the agricultural crisis

Northern Ireland farmers are invited to attend an open meeting with Northern Ireland’s politicians by the following farm organisations, Farmers For Action and Northern Ireland Agricultural Producers Association.

It will take place on Tuesday 27th October at 8pm in the Glenavon Hotel, Cookstown.

One politician from each political party, including Independents, have been invited to come along, give their views on beef, cereals, lamb, milk, pigs, potatoes, poultry, vegetables, followed by a question and answer session.

This will be your chance to tell the politicians in the lead up to the local election just how hard real life is becoming in rural Northern Ireland currently.

This meeting will be concluded by an explanation of the blueprint for Northern Ireland agriculture proposed by the above supporting farm organisations, which if put into legislation by Stormont would return Northern Ireland farmers a minimum of the cost of production plus a margin inflation linked across the staples and turn Northern Ireland from austerity and crisis to prudent prosperity.

We need your support, come along and hear the full story!

NI agriculture is in crisis
