"The Nitrates Action Programme has been revised for 2022-2025. These proposals with affect all farmers across all sectors regardless of stocking rates," she said. 

"Deadline  for submissions is September 20. The CAP Negotiations and Farm Schemes are at crucial juncture and important members discuss  IFA’s six key objectives.  

"South Tipperary IFA held a Day of Action in Cahir to highlight farming’s contribution to the rural economy. Our message to Government has not changed, Ms O'Keeffe continued.
