On this week's show, Jack Kennedy speaks to Irish Farmers Journal beef editor Adam Woods about the current red hot mart trade and what is driving the high prices.

He also talks to Declan Marren about the outlook for dairy beef and how rising costs could jeopardise the calf trade and catches up with Lorcan Roche Kelly, our agri-business editor, to get his take on the Dawn Meats-Kildare Chilling takeover and whether he thinks it will get the green light from the authorities.
