Pig Farming in Ireland

Pig meat represented 7.2% of total food, drink and horticulture exports in 2019, production in Ireland increased by 14.4% from €458.6m to €524.7m. Lower pig meat imports were recorded due to higher raw material pricing across Europe due to exceptionally strong International demand. This had a knock on impact on availability of product, especially for secondary processors and resulted in total exports falling by around 4% to 254,000 tonnes. A total of 3.4 million pigs were processed by export meat plants, with exports valued at €941m, an increase of 14% from 2018.

I listen to farmers expressing concern about the service they are getting from their accountant. I tell them to join ifac as I am very happy with the service I am getting.

Pat Murphy Dairy Farmer

You need an accountant who knows farmers and the business of farming. Ifac is a co-op and they know farming and farm tax, they are experts and I recommend them.

Teddy Cashman Dairy Farmer

Young farmers need expert specialist advice, they need to be with an accountant who knows farming and farm income and transfer taxes. Ifac fits the bill for me and I strongly recommend them to other young farmers.
