Megan O’Brien and Aisling O’Brien bring you the biggest stories of the week in Irish agriculture, which this week include:

– Calf exports disrupted again – this time due to the closure of a French lairage

– Vet issues a warning on labelling of farm chemicals after a mix up between teat spray and detergent

– Proposal to double fines for owners of uncontrolled dogs

– Castleblayney Mart meeting hears frustration of farmers who say they are out of pocket

Plus, this week we’re asking our listeners the question:

‘Is a €5,000 fine for irresponsible dog owners enough?’
