Four draft resolutions have been sent to Kerry Co-op advisory committee members ahead of an advisory committee meeting next week.

One of the proposed rule changes that has set alarm bells ringing is the setting of a minimum floor of 20 shares owned if a farmer wants to seek election to the Kerry advisory committee. New entrants get one share on entry. At a price of €600 per share, it is easy to see how this cohort of suppliers would not be represented if that rule is passed.
