A Kerry TD is calling on the Agriculture Minister to allow farmers in an environmental scheme to cut hay early due to the good spell of weather.

Farmers in the GLAS scheme cannot cut hay until July 1st.

Independent deputy Michael Healy-Rae says following the bad start to the year and the fodder crisis nobody should be banned from cutting hay during this weather.
