Sinn Féin Councillor Dermot Nicholl has welcomed the new labeling system that will allow for cattle to be traded across the island of Ireland without occurring a penalty.

Mr Nicholl said: “The problem arose when cattle reared in the South were brought North for slaughter incurred a penalty of £150 due to labeling issues. These cattle became known as ‘nomad’ and created problems for farming markets and farmers alike.

“I welcome the introduction of new labeling that will allow the transfer of cattle across Ireland without occurring a penalty.
