The fourth meeting of the Beef Taskforce is to take place later this month.

Agriculture Minister Charlie McConalogue has confirmed the meeting and acknowledged the crucial role the beef sector plays in the rural economy.

Stakeholders will discuss the draft application for Irish grass-fed beef to attain PGI status when they meet in late September.

They will also focus on the market transparency studies being conducted by Grant Thornton.
