We're probably producing too much milk thus reducing the competition between the buyers.

Looking on the bright side nearly 5p better than last year.

They had talked about the price taking a 'soft landing' in the spring.
Would you call a drop of 6p/litre from last month a 'soft landing'?
Perhaps alot of big plans for expansion or beef men going into milk etc. might be put on hold for a while to see how things will work out.
Still - like dairylands said, lets look on the bright side.

I read that "what went wrong" was that 90 million litres were offered for auction instead of 30-50 million. Where did it all come from? Over the water?

Do you have any idea what our costs are going to be janfebmar?

There ain't going to be much left behind at 23p.

I have no idea where 40million litres spot came from. Can't wait to hear.

"

Agreed, but there would have been less at 18p.

The 30s gives the sort of return to do the job right. Personally I am very glad it came when it did as I am currently doing some work on the FNMS which has run on far longer than it should.

Dad was at a United Meeting where they were talking about alot of interest from beef producers looking to start milk, I wasn't sure it sounded like such a good idea, now I'm convinced, just hope these beef guys look at something else now, bio-energy crops?....

I wouldn't like to be in David Dobbin's shoes come this Thursday at the Winter Fair, maybe fortunate for him that I can't go!!

Farming is the oldest JOB in the world, too many people seem to have it confused with the oldest PROFESSION!

It won't happen on any scale, if they wanted the tie of dairy cows then they would have started years ago. If they intend doing it with paid labour, just take a look in the FW or FG, at the number of vacancies for herdsmen. Just because we are getting a little more for our milk doesn't mean that lots of people that want to work in sh*t magically appear. There are still plenty of jobs out there that are cleaner and pay better for fewer hours.
