THE DEMAND for cattle and its sales are "very weak" again and the market cannot be revitalised without urgent government intervention, said Stanislav Nemec, spokesman for the Slovak Agriculture and Food Chamber (SPPK), last week. The State Market Regulation Fund intervened twice last year but SPPK has already requested Agriculture Minister Pavol Koncoš to intervene for a third time.
