Sheep Sector Research A Concern For Irish

20 November 2014

EU – More resources are needed for sheep sector research, says an Irish livestock spokesperson after the release of European funding for sheepmeat marketing.

Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers Association sheep chairman Paul Brady has lamented the closure of several sheep research centres across Ireland.

“While we welcome the recent announcement by Sheep Ireland that it will work with Teagasc to further promote genetic improvement across hill sheep breeds, ICSA is concerned that a lack of resources at Teagasc has led to sheep research falling behind other sectors," said Mr. Brady.
