ICMSA President Pat McCormack
President of the Irish Creamery and Milk Suppliers Association (ICMSA), Pat McCormack, has asked farmers to support candidates in the upcoming European and local elections who are showing a real commitment to the industry and rural communities.
The ICMSA President noted that farming in Ireland is always changing and adapting to opportunities and challenges, but the sector has rarely, if ever, experienced as much uncertainty as that which currently prevails, with CAP, Brexit and Climate change issues.
Mr McCormack says the upcoming EU and local elections present farmers and rural dwellers with an opportunity to set out their concerns to politicians.
ICMSA have already set its key demands to candidates in rural constituencies and say it is essential that all individual farmers and rural dwellers insist that those going for election, put farming and rural issues at the top of their agendas.
The afforementioned elections will take place May 24.
