Over 7,000 members from Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, Cork, Kerry, Galway, Offaly, Roscommon and Wexford gathered in Ennis today for a mass demonstration to vent their anger.
The IFA says the cutbacks will mean a €20m loss to farmers in the region every year.
President Padraig Walshe is demanding the Government think again.
