Any thoughts on how targets would be achieved especially in dairy country?

3/3: Trade deals which involve food imports which would be illegal to produce in EU. Is it little reason why asks the question? I suspect that deep down we all know the answer

2/2: But it's action that matters. Farmers are going to be asked to change their system of farming, but without any guarantee of support. Profit-gouging by processors & supermarkets with no plan to tackle them.

1/2: My English teacher in school was always saying 'read correctly'. It's a question that is asking & it's the way many farmers across feel. This is a plan without details. We all agree on the destination

2/2: The reality is, that people depend on their trade unions and lobbyists to translate such document's

To be honest I spent enough of my 20's reading such documents. Like the manifesto which you advised me to read(& I did!!), probably aspirational, with little detail & produced by someone in a office on a laptop with little practical farm experience

Hard to see, a pair of black rabbits who have taken up residence on the farm. Allegedly descended from a black rabbit lost by a tourist about 10 years ago........ That or a new species has been discovered!!!!!!!! What Di you think ??

This might be part of the solution. Teagasc run commercial farm in West Cork. Ties in with local processor . Hopefully will result in greater carbon sequestration & profit for the farmer

7% of the vote, devastating climate change(?) & yet crude ambition for power seems to be the name of the game some in Removing the only TD that people might actually recognise not a way to win people's trust

Plans on paper are meaningless within buyin from farmers. If there's no impact studies regarding effect on farmers incomes, its going to be hard to ask them to trust these proposals. is our union, there job is to protect my income, not anyone else

The future is becoming. no longer interested in food. If markets will pay for it, that's grand. No doubt, will figure out a way to reward farmers from the marketplace. ideal place to start.

It’s been a disgusting tactic by some, at a time when our farmers are facing such difficulty, to falsely link animal ag with Coronavirus to push their agenda. Great piece by an expert in virology and veterinary medicine highlight how wrong headed it is.
