ABOUT

Beef Plan is a movement and associated plan put together by farmers for farmers. For years farmers profits have been eaten into by beef processors and retailers and as a result beef farming in Ireland is on its knees. This plan was born in the hope of saving and rejuvenating beef farming in Ireland before its too late.

The plan’s objectives centre around the following:

  • Regaining control of an animal from birth to slaughter and beyond;
  • Returning a cost of production price plus a margin as a minimum; and
  • Regaining respect within the beef industry.
