Attempts to reconvene talks on the beef crisis would be a waste of time if the issue of pricing is not addressed, according to the Irish Farmers Association (IFA).

Unofficial protests at meat processing plants have resumed with farmers angry that three days of talks last week failed to deal with the issue.

IFA President Joe Healy says factories should move to increase prices now.

"Reconvening talks without price being on the table, without us being able to talk about price are a waste of time," said Mr Healy.

"We had three days of that which were ultimately a waste of time.

"You talk to any farmer on the ground and what he or she is worried about is what price they're getting for their beef and that is way too low at the present time."
