Fodder Taskforce Action Plan
Following the period of unfavourable weather and difficult farming conditions in the spring of 2013, the Minister of Agriculture established an industry Fodder Taskforce to consider the issues facing the livestock industry in the next 12 months and to propose interventions to be made by the industry and the Department to mitigate the effects of these issues.
The Fodder Taskforce was made up of representatives from the farming unions, food processors, banks, the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) and DARD.
The Taskforce has agreed an action plan which the Minister has approved and published. The Fodder Taskforce Action Plan is available to download at the link below
