Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Michael McNamara: However, if he did not - and some colleagues do not - then I would not be able to get to my feet to address the issue.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Cathal Crowe: It is important for me to say that.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Michael McNamara: I listened to what the Minister had to say. He has a lot of nice words about committees and discussions. In essence, however, what he is saying to farmers is, "Live, horse, and you will get grass". He talked about a wartime response. What he is doing is not a wartime response. There are people on committees discussing this problem who have got more, even if just a cup of tea, than...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

David Stanton: I join colleagues in asking whether the Minister will consider including dairy farmers in the scheme to which he referred. Will he give us an idea as to what the subscription to the scheme will be or what the take-up is at the moment? Has he any estimate of how many applicants there will be?

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: I thank the Deputies for their questions. The Ministers of State, Deputy Heydon and Senator Hackett, and I have been very proactive as a team in working with the farming organisations to address the challenges that are there and to ensure we make the preparations now in order to be secure next April and May. I brought all the farmer representatives together immediately after the invasion of...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Michael McNamara: Has the Minister done anything about EU import tariffs?

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: This time last year, the price of milk was 35 cent a litre.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Alan Farrell: Thank you, Minister. We are over time.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: Today, it is 50 cent a litre and the cost of production has gone up by an estimated 7 cent in the meantime. Therefore, the costs are being more than covered by the prices being made. Indeed, the estimate is that profitability will be very strong on dairy farms this year.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Alan Farrell: Thank you, Minister.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Fodder Crisis (26 May 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: This particular issue is not about covering all sectors. It is about growing grass and making sure agriculture, as a sector, is secure. That is why we are targeting the available funding at the beef and sheep sectors, which, as the evidence is showing, need that support to generate the activity to make the whole sector secure.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Climate Change Policy (26 May 2022)

Climate Change Policy

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Climate Change Policy (26 May 2022)

David Stanton: 123. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if he will report on the measures being taken by his Department to assist farmers in contributing to the national effort to reduce climate-based emissions; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26636/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Climate Change Policy (26 May 2022)

David Stanton: This question relates to the role farmers can play in reducing climate-based emissions. What supports is the Department making available to help them in this regard? Farmers are often demonised but they really want to play their part and are anxious to do so. They need help, support and guidance in that.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Climate Change Policy (26 May 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: I thank the Deputy for his question. As he is aware, the agriculture sector is required to reduce emissions by between 22% to 30% by 2030, based on a 2018 baseline of 23 megatonnes of CO2 equivalent. This is a challenging target for the sector, but it is one that also will present opportunities for farmers. Our farm families are committed to taking a leadership role in meeting our overall...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Agriculture Industry (26 May 2022)

Carol Nolan: The Minister made reference to limited capacity to reduce the excise duty on agricultural diesel. That suggests to me the Minister could have gone further than the 2 cent reduction. I ask him to go further and to make sure he takes measures that will assist this sector, which, as I said, is in deep crisis. I ask that an additional matter be considered. Farm Contractors Ireland, FCI, is...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Agriculture Industry (26 May 2022)

Charlie McConalogue: We have been monitoring the situation closely, in particular the challenges facing the farming community. That is why I came forward with the tillage scheme, providing €400 per hectare for each additional hectare of cereal that is grown this year. It is also why I have come forward with the €1,000 payment to farmers to help with the cost of making silage. One of the key costs...
