The Fine Gael MEP Mairead McGuinness says the Irish meat factories needs to show more respect to farmers, amidst the dispute between the two sides over beef prices. Ms McGuinness made the comments at the European Parliament in Brussels after farmers staged nationwide protests outside meat factories demanding a better price for their animals. The Agriculture minister Simon Coveney is hopeful that a compromise can be reached. However Ms McGuinness says that the meat industry doesn’t appreciate enough the work farmers do.
