Five beef farmers have agreed to comply with a High Court injunction stopping them blockading meat processing plants.
The farmers can continue to stage peaceful demonstrations outside Slaney Foods in Co Wexford, but cannot blockade trucks moving in or out of the site.
Injunctions relating to farmers protesting outside Dawn Meats and ABP plants have now been made permanent.
Irish Farmers Association President Joe Healy says the farmers just want a better price for their cattle.
He said: "I've a very clear message for [Meat Industry Ireland] - that's to get out of the High Court and get back down to supporting the farmers, and paying a proper price to the farmers that won't lead to any of the distrust and anger that's there.
"Look: this is about saving farmers... this is about saving rural Ireland, and the livelihoods of farm families. That's all we want."
In a statement, Dawn Meats welcomed today's High Court decision.
The company said: "It is always our preference to avoid recourse to legal action, but the illegal nature of the protest activity has made it necessary to protect our business, our employees, our supplier farmers and our customers who depend on us being able to operate.
"Today’s ruling is permanent, and a welcome confirmation that when peaceful protest escalates to illegal activity, the Courts will ensure the law of the land prevails, and seek to put a stop to intimidation, verbal abuse and threatening behaviour."
The firm said they're open to further discussions - through their industry representative Meat Industry Ireland - with farming groups about the concerns, but only when blockades are removed and normal services resume.
Earlier, MII said 12 meat processing plants have stopped operating and started laying off staff because of the ongoing beef protests.
The industry group suggested the ongoing protests have led some processing plants to lay-off staff, and warned more jobs could be lost if the blockades continue.
It also said the sector as a whole is being damaged, with customers of these plants being forced to get their fresh beef from other countries.
The group argued: "With political chaos in the UK ahead of a potential no deal Brexit, the last thing our sector needs at this crucial time is a series of industry blockades that prevent us supplying our customers in the UK and elsewhere."
