Bord Bia's director of markets Padraig Brennan discusses the performance of Irish food exports in 2017 with Irish Farmers Journal news correspondent Amy Forde.

Bord Bia held its 2018 meat marketing seminar on Friday, and markets specialist Phelim O’Neill asked Cormac Healy of Meat Industry Ireland how factories see the industry's performance in 2017 and what they expect for the coming year.

Pat Smith was the secretary general of the IFA until he left the organisation amid the pay scandal of November 2015.

He now has his own business supplying renewable energy equipment and he recently became the co-chairman of a new organisation, the Micro Renewable Energy Federation. He told Irish Farmers Journal news correspondent Thomas Hubert about his new role.

The Common Agricultural Policy makes up a large proportion of the average EU farmers income. It’s due to undergo some changes at the hands of EU Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan.

Our correspondent Phelim O’Neil visited a farm facility with Commissioner Hogan in Holland and asked Marc Calon the president of LTO the main Dutch farm organisation farmers in the country would respond to the Commissioners proposed changes.
