The Irish Farmers Association has decided to protest outside today's Beef Forum meeting, rather than participating in the forum.

Galway-based IFA President Joe Healy says his organisation has tried to constructively engage over the past few years at the Beef Forum, which is presided over by Agriculture Minister Michael Creed, but claims nothing has been delivered for farmers in the livestock sector.

The IFA claims the Minister has failed to tackle the beef factories over the loss-making prices on offer to farmers, and says the Government must deliver for the sector in next week's Budget.
