  • [01] Measures to support beef market

    Following the opinion of the Beef Management Committee on Friday 30th August, the European Commission will apply two measures which aim to stabilise the beef market which continues to be depressed due to the BSE crisis. Firstly as an exceptional measure intervention has been opened for light/young male cattle i.e. minimum weight of 300 kgs live weight and maximum age 10 months at a price which will be set at the intervention price for larger cattle plus 23%. This is one of the Commission's proposals to Council aimed at rebalancing the market and is of particular importance for french producers. The measure introduced by the Commission under emmergency procedure will only apply for September. The Commission hopes that at that stage the Council will have approved it's proposals in which case this special intervention can continue. It was also decided to purchase 23,530 tonnes of beef into intervention including, 6,600 tonnes from Germany, 2,800 from France, 4,500 from Ireland and 3,000 tonnes from the United Kingdom.
