DONEGAL BEEF FARMERS FORCED TO SELL AT A LOSS AS PROCESSORS CLEAN-UP – TD

first_imgDONEGAL farmers are being fleeced by greedy processors and are being forced to sell cattle at a loss, a local TD has warned.Thomas Pringle has called on Minister Coveney to act in addressing the inequity between farmers and processors.The Independent TD said: “As it stands the relationship between farmer and processor is one where the processors dominate and dictate the price that farmers can achieve for their cattle. “When we have a situation in this country where the entire market is dominated by very few players with one dominant player, there will not be competition in respect of prices for the primary producer. We will continue to see a situation where primary producers will see a loss of up to €300 per head when they sell their stock and small producers will never be able to secure fair prices from dominant processors.“This crisis affects 100,000 farms across the country, with the most recent figures on farm income showing that the average farm income in the beef sector is around €11,000. When you compare that to the average income in the dairy sector of somewhere near €64,000, it highlights the extent of the crisis in the beef sector. Beef farmers are left at the mercy of the processors for their income, who through the marts keep the price at the levels that suit them. I wonder whether an actual ‘market’ is in existence in this country at all.“Additionally, many small abattoirs over the last 15 years or so have been hounded out of business by the enforcement of increasingly stricter standards on them that have left them unable to continue to operate. In one case that I know of personally a small butcher who had an abattoir where he used to slaughter his own cattle was forced to spend over €30,000 as it was at the time to upgrade his facilities.“Within months of reopening, he was visited again and told that he would have to spend an additional €20,000 and at that stage, he decided to give up and close his abattoir as it was not financially viable for him to continue. This has happened to hundreds of small processors around the country and significantly, the effect of this was that it has removed them from the marts bidding against the large processors for cattle. It was a convenient way of getting rid of competition. “The Minister has convened a round table to discuss recent challenges but I wonder why such a ‘softly, softly’ course of action is being taken. The beef sector needs determined action; if the processors do not want a regulator, let them open their books to the Competition Authority to examine and let us see how the market is working,” stated Pringle. DONEGAL BEEF FARMERS FORCED TO SELL AT A LOSS AS PROCESSORS CLEAN-UP – TD was last modified: July 1st, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:beef farmerscrisisdonegalpriceTDThomas Pringlelast_img read more

TURTLE STORY II – DONEGAL LOGGERHEAD SAVED FROM DEATH

first_imgA young loggerhead turtle is battling for survival at Exploris Aquarium in the North after being swept hundreds of miles off course and fetching up on the Donegal coast.Staff at the Co Down aquarium are having to stay in the turtle’s tank in relays, holding its weakened head out of the water in case it drowns.The turtle – aged 12, and therefore too young to have its sex determined – was found on the beach at Glencolmcille by Grainne Rua as she walked her dog. She alerted the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, which rescued the young reptile, now called Columba, and brought it to Exploris on Sunday.Tania’s find comes just weeks after the world’s smallest and most endanagered species of turtle was found at Rossnowlagh.Loggerhead turtles are found in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans and the Mediterranean Sea, but can’t survive winter sea temperatures here. Tania Singleton at Exploris believes Columba may have been travelling along the Gulf Stream from the Caribbean when it was swept off course and into waters that are far too cold for survival.“Under 15 degrees, turtles go into a lethargy response. Under 10 degrees, they go into a cold response, where they will just float,” Tania said. “Sea temperatures off Donegal were about 8 degrees. Once they get below 10C they are just oblivious to what is going on.”Columba is the first loggerhead turtle to have been rescued by Exploris in 20 years, but there was a spate of nine turtle rescues between 1990 and 1995, which provided vital experience.The staff have gradually increased the tank temperature in a bid to bring Columba back to full health.“When we got up to 16 or 17C it was almost like a light switched on and it became alive. It was bobbing about for hours,” Tania said.Unfortunately, when Tania arrived yesterday morning the turtle’s condition had deteriorated and it was submerged with its head underwater. “I thought it was dead,” Tania said.TURTLE STORY II – DONEGAL LOGGERHEAD SAVED FROM DEATH was last modified: January 27th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CALL FOR RESOURCES AS RAMELTON GARDA STATION CLOSES DURING OFFICE HOURS

first_imgA call has been made for extra Garda resources after the closure of Ramelton Garda station during office hours.Ramelton is without a Garda station during the daytime.Fianna Fáil TD Charlie McConlogue made the call to Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald to allocate additional resources to the station.The station, which has two Gardai attached to it, has been forced to close during office hours, because of staffing issues. Deputy McConalogue commented, “Ramelton is the largest town on the Fanad Peninsula with a population of well over 2,000 people and the fact that there are only two guards allocated to cover this population beggars belief.“I have been contacted by a number of concerned constituents, who are worried that the Garda station has not been open during office hours and are fearful of a further downgrading of services. Residents are understandably worried about the cutbacks, which are impacting on policing standards in the town and surrounding areas.“The loss of the community Gardai has been a feature of successive Ministers in this Government. Ramelton as well as many other towns across Donegal have lost a visible Garda presence as a result of Fine Gael’s slash and burn approach to our force. Garda numbers have fallen dramatically since this Government came into office; falling from 476 officers across Donegal in 2007 to 404 at the end of last year.“Ramelton is one of the many stations that are suffering as a result of these drastic culls. The Minister must allocate additional resources to the area to ensure that staffing levels can be increased so that the fears of the local community can be allayed, and consideration should be given to a review of the situation across the entire Donegal region”.  CALL FOR RESOURCES AS RAMELTON GARDA STATION CLOSES DURING OFFICE HOURS was last modified: March 25th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConalogueGARDA STAITONRAMLETONlast_img read more

Old Oak regeneration ‘requires everyone to work together’ say QPR

first_imgQPR have responded to claims their plans for a sporting and leisure hub at Old Oak have been dealt a serious blow by Cargiant.The club’s owners want to transform the land between Scrubs Lane and Willesden Junction into an area to be known as New Queens Park which would include a 40,000-capacity arena where Rangers would play.The car supermarket company owns 45 acres of the proposed site, is a major local employer and must be relocated for the proposed regeneration of the area to go ahead.Cargiant have been assessing possible sites to relocate their current operation to but also say they are working on their own plans to develop Old Oak and that their proposals do not include a stadium for QPR.Talks between Rangers and Cargiant ended some time ago with both parties believing there was no basis for a partnership.A QPR spokesman said: “The future regeneration of Old Oak requires everyone to work together for the common good – the boroughs, the Mayor, landowners and the local community.“Our current consultation has so far attracted the views of over 1,000 local residents with over 80% in support of our stadium-led regeneration.“The future of Old Oak lies in the regeneration of the entire area and not the uncoordinated and piecemeal development of individual land holdings.”QPR have invited people to give their views on the future regeneration of Old Oak through the club’s consultation: www.new-queens-park.co.ukSee also:Rangers say public supports Old Oak plansFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
