It's expected that a meeting of the IFA's executive council later today, will lead to full elections for the organisation's board in the coming months.

A protest by IFA members is expected ahead of the meeting.

Yesterday, senior members of the association's board indicated that they would step down and allow for full elections to take place.

It follows controversy over pay and pension packages paid to high ranking IFA staff.

Farmer's Journal reporter Pat O'Toole, says he expects that senior members of the board and the IFA's leadership will be replaced through an election in the near future...........
