Situation and Outlook in Irish Agriculture - 2009 Mid Year Review

The ongoing global economic crisis conditions the outlook for dairy, beef, sheep and cereals in 2009. While cost inflation was the main influence on farm margins in 2008, changes in output prices are the main factor behind the story for 2009. Dairy and cereal enterprises will experience the greatest difficulties in 2009 due to substantial decreases in milk and grain prices relative to 2008. Reductions in input expenditure on dairy and cereal farms will be moderate and, as a consequence, negative net margins will be widespread. By contrast, in 2009 output value will decline on beef and sheep enterprises due to falling prices, but margins may actually increase as these output price reductions are more than offset by savings in input expenditure.
