Minister McConalogue on CAP, foreign markets and the future of the Irish beef sector


For the 100th episode of the Beef Edge podcast, Catherine Egan is joined by Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine, Charlie McConalogue to find out what beef farmers can expect from the new CAP, to discuss markets for Irish beef abroad & what is in store for the future of the Irish beef sector.

The Minister told the Beef Edge that beef farmers will be supported in the next CAP. 

‘The core support proposed for beef farmers is the Suckler Carbon Efficiency Scheme which will build on the work of the BDGP which came before it and also elements of BEEP-S and beef schemes to help drive the environmental and productivity efficiency on farms. It will deliver €150 per cow on the first 10 cows as opposed to the €90 per cow in the first 10 under the BDGP.’
