In England, basic income for beef farmers are expected to be cut by half by 2024. In many cases, these payments accounted for 75% or more of the profits these farmers could generate. In this context, many English farmers will quit their businesses. This perspective is perceived as an opportunity for the Irish meat producers and processers to increase their supplies to the British market. However, Irish exporters must consider the recently signed UK trade deals with New Zealand and Australia. As a result of these agreements, the exporters from these countries will easily access the British market.

Experts consider that if demand for beef continues to grow in China, Australia, and New Zealand will not influence the UK market too much. However, if this does not happen, cheap meet from these countries may affect the British and Irish producers.
