Numbers decreased by 8000 last week compared to the week prior – according to Meat Industry Ireland.The consequences of these protest may be felt by workers today as hundreds could temporarily loose their job.This also means that farmers may loose the opportunity to sell their cattle to factories.Talks were due to get under way between both parties at Department of Agriculture offices in Backweston, Co Kildare, last night.These were cancelled as meat processors said they would not partake in negotiations while the blockade continued.
