In the Dairygold Farm Talk Programme this Saturday morning
29th. July a review of the recent 6 -day IFA Grain Growers demonstration
at the Department of Agriculture in Dublin and how to avail of
the compensation package negotiated with Minister Michael Creed.
West Cork was amongst the parts of the country worst hit by
weather-related crop damage in 2016..
IFA West Cork Grain Committee Chairman David O'Brien urges
growers who suffered losses in 2016 to initiate their claims as
soon as possible, and he outlines the recommended sequence
for obtaining the maximum proportion of the ten thousand five hundred
package won by the IFA Grain Committee negotiators.
The IFA West Cork Chairman agrees that not all farmers will
be happy with the compensation amount, but he tells Farm Programme
Editor & Presenter John O'Connor the final amount agreed is well
over twice the figure first set by the Department of Agriculture.
