Organic co-op raises cattle price

By FWi staff

The Organic Livestock Marketing Co-operative has announced a 15p/kg rise in its cattle base price for 2000/1.

That takes the value of an R4L beast to 2.60/kg dw.

Ralph Human, General Manager of OLMC said: “With current growth in demand, there is strong upward pressure on prices. But going for a large increase in price is not sustainable in the future.”

The co-op is the leading UK marketing agency for organic livestock.

It is owned and controlled by its 120 members, based throughout the UK, and markets approximately 40% of all UK organic livestock.
