Farmers meeting to give Limerick milk providers a chance to discuss grievances

Limerick ICMSA Chairman John Bateman.

THE LIMERICK branch of a specialist farming organisation is to host a meeting to examine the outlook for farming in 2024 next week.

The Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers Organisation (ICMSA) will host 2024 Outlook meeting on Monday January 22 at the Ballylanders GAA club.

The meeting will focus on what the ICMSA say is a “restricting” nature of both the reduction of nitrates possible and cow banding on milk production in the county.

Limerick is the third highest producer of milk in Ireland, behind Cork and Tipperary.

John Enright, ICMSA general secretary and native of Ardagh, will be in attendance on the night to make sure members the chance to get precise estimations on their issues.
