The IFA is now blockading the Aldi nationwide warehouse in Naas, blocking access to delivery trucks.
"Farmers won't accept any more stalling or a Mickey Mouse price increase".
The Irish Farmers' Association (IFA) has set up a blockade of a major retail distribution centre in Ireland for the second day running as it continues its protest over beef prices.
"All of our fresh meat, including our beef, is 100pc Irish and Bord Bia assured".
"We welcomed the resumption of the Beef Taskforce this week and have engaged openly with farmer representative organisations on the beef issue over recent months", a spokesperson said.
Farmers at the site said they are protesting over beef prices and say that they are fighting for their livelihoods.
At 7am on Thursday morning, dozens of Irish farmers, with their tractors, stationed themselves at the entrance of the distribution centre, preventing trucks from entering and leaving, grinding the supermarket's delivery lines to a halt.

U.S. flu season arrives early, driven by an unexpected virus
Some 143 influenza-associated pediatric deaths have been reported to the CDC so for the 2018-2019 flu season. Five outbreaks have been reported since the beginning of the season.
IFA President Joe Healy disagrees and says protests will continue until there is a significant increase in the price of beef. We have had enough excuses from both processors and retailers. "This and further threatened blockading activity are an expression of internal farm organisation politics playing out in the form of disruption of businesses".
The 10c price increase will help shorten the gap of up to 50c between what farmers in Ireland get paid per kg compared with their United Kingdom and European Union colleagues.
Mr. Scally believes another protest will happen in the next seven to ten days at another warehouse facility, if the beef price issue is not resolved.
"Farmers are justified in seeking an immediate and meaningful increase in the price of beef". The lack of urgency is staggering. "The only people who benefit from delays are meat barons who are pocketing the additional margin which independent analysis shows is in the market". Meat Industry Ireland came in with nothing to offer.
The IFA has accused retailers of "hiding behind factories" and failing to do what they can to address the prices paid to beef farmers.
"This is the first of many protests", he told RTÉ radio's Morning Ireland.
Coughlan claimed that Irish beef farmers have lost €60 million to date due to the meat industry's failure to honour their commitments and that farmers will lose another €20 million by the end of the year if a price deal is not agreed.
