We continue to lobby on the issue of imported lamb being sole at most major retailers in vast quantities at discounted prices.We want to do more on this and we definitely need to be at someone's gates but I am afraid we are getting very little support from sheep farmers and this is your industry.
We are currently being told by a major red meat processor that most retailers have stocks of NZ going well into July, so think on and if you wish FFA to take action, please let us know, we are prepared to do something but we need the people who produce this wonderful British product to let us know what they want to do, either stand up for themselves or leave things stand? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Those of you who are not members, we would urge you to join as without our membership, we cannot continue to lobby effectively on all the issues that affect our industry. Membership is £50 pa, that is just 96p per week to be part of an organisation that dares to go where others would not dip their toe!
