EU assistance not enough to save beef farmers

Calls have been made on the EU Commission to deliver greater aid supports to protect farmers and the agri-food sector from the impact of the coronavirus.

The calls have been made by Donegal TD, and the Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue TD.

The Donegal TD has claimed that the financial aid announced is insufficient to meet the severity of the Covid-19 crisis and the hit on vulnerable sectors like beef.
