As part of the Irish Beef Sector Agreement of 15th September, Bord Bia agreed to develop a beef market price index model based on three components - cattle price index, beef market price index (retail and wholesale) and an offal price indicator.

Work on the development of this index is underway and will be conducted within Bord Bia's existing budget.
