Tenders sought for beef advisory services
A CONTRACT is gone out to tender for advisory services for the new Beef Producer Organisations.
Advisors will be sought to provide farm business planning and also for setting the group up as a legal entity.
The advisory costs of up to €3,000 linked to establishing a group will be provided by the Agriculture Department on a once-off basis.
Minister Michael Creed said this will allow them to negotiate collectively with processors for their beef price.
