More than a thousand farmers have protested outside the Dáil about the EU's new trade deal.

Farmers dumped theirs wellies outside Leinster House saying they won’t need them because of Mercosur.

The Beef Plan Movement says it will cripple already struggling farm incomes.

The Dáil is debating the Mercosur trade deal which farmers don't like as it will allow more cheap South American beef into the EU market.

The Business Minister says some TDs criticising the EU's new trade deal wouldn't know a bee from a bull's foot.

Heather Humphreys has accused opposition TDs of jumping on the bandwagon to score political points.

Business Minister Heather Humphreys says they will look for changes - but she doesn't accept some opposition criticism.
