Mona Donoghue Concannon has been elected Connacht Vice President of the Offaly-based ICSA.

She has reportedly stated that for too long the voice of women in agriculture hasn’t been heard.

Meanwhile, IFA Animal Health Chairman Pat Farrell has called on the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed reject the proposal to impose a 30-day pre-movement TB test on animals in the Delegated Acts under the New EU Animal Health Law.

He said the implementation of the control on animal movements would impact severely on the regular trade for cattle and add unnecessary costs to the TB programme.
