MEP Kelly says CAP payments should be directed towards grass-based livestock farmers

A Kerry MEP says payments under the new Common Agricultural Policy should be directed towards livestock farmers rather than feedlot owners.

Sean Kelly says consumers need to know how their food is produced.

The Kilcummin man agrees with fellow Ireland South MEP, Mick Wallace that factory feedlot owners should not get the same payments as farmers relying on greener and more sustainable methods of production.
