Milk Link announces milk price increase

Dairy farmers supplying Milk Link are set to receive an increase of up to 1.20p/litre after the dairy announced it will lift its milk price from next month.

Members of the dairy’s supply group will receive an extra 0.75p/litre from 1 August.

A further 0.3p/litre bonus will be paid between 1 October and 31 March 2008 on all litres, provided production is at least the same level or above last year’s production on a month by month basis.

The dairy also announced its ‘B’ price for December is set to increase to 130% of the ‘A’ price.

‘Positive’

This meant the dairy would pay about 24p/bitre for all ‘B’ litres produced between 1 September and the end of 2007.

The ‘B’ price would also increase to 100% of the ‘A’ price in the first three months of 2008, the dairy added. The changes to the ‘B’ price total a further 0.15p/l increase.

Barry Nicholls, Milk Link chief executive said, said the latest increase, combined with rises in April and July, means its milk price had increased by 2.65p/litre in recent months,

“We remain very positive about our ability to deliver further returns to Milk Link members later in the year,” he added.
