European farm unions back end to beef ban

By FWi staff

FARMERS representatives from across Europe have backed an end to the beef ban.

In a move which is likely to boost UK hopes of getting the ban lifted, the European farm union organisation, COPA/COGECA, has agreed to back beef exports from animals born after 1 August, 1996.

The announcement follows two days of talks between NFU president Ben Gill and representatives from COPA/COGECA.
