Fodder imports necessary, says Minister Creed


Speaking after meeting with Teagasc and industry representatives on the current fodder situation, the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed, said: “As fodder supplies are now tightening across the country, it is important that these are managed proactively. We will, unfortunately, have to import fodder again as occurred in 2013 to supplement existing supplies as the prolonged bad weather conditions continue. I have asked my officials to develop a scheme to support the import of fodder from outside the island of Ireland.”
