Stop selling milk short
TIMES are bad for dairy farmers – all the more reason to help yourself
where you can.
Check the recent Farmers Weekly published milk prices. Average “prices
received” are 1.5ppl lower than could be got for “Standard litre”.
selling ourselves short with “white water” contracts – it still pays
better to feed for milk solids, and it doesnt flood an already glutted
