A Kerry TD says the €4.2 million allocation for a fodder import scheme is not enough.

Deputy Danny Healy-Rae says he welcomes the funding announcement but says it is already not enough.

Deputy Healy-Rae says more money will need to be allocated as farmers are in a “terrible predicament”.

The Kerry TD says other measures need to be put in place early to support farmers and ensure fodder is of high quality and fairly priced.
