Re: muller price 30.5 p feb


My cousin retails milk in Bearsden on the outskirts of Glasgow and this month Muller/Wiseman put his price up by 5ppl and in August it went up by 4ppl so I dont think [sign in to see URL] is much to crow about in Febuary, in fact its CRAP and the only way to change things is you guys who have a choice to resign and move. Milk is very thight and if we cant get the price up above the cost of production when its in short supply we might as well all chuck it. So don't be so bloody smug about [sign in to see URL] in 3 months time.
First Milk dont need to match that price we pay a dividend and intrest on capital invested, what do you get.... a milkshake at Agriscot.

Re: muller price 30.5 p feb


It really annoys me when co-op members say they do not need a decent milk price because they get a div/ interest - the latter have NOTHING to do with milk price they are a reflection of your investment which is completely separate. Anyone can pay a div if they pay a cr+p milk price!

We are in a co-op and our milk price is currently being held back by Milk Link as our dairy works on a basket and ML is 2ppl below the other 2 and dragging our price down. The div from our co-op not only goes to producers but to everyone who works there and I resent them getting a div when our price is so low.

arla moving [sign in to see URL] so muller will have to move more now . Ask me why you allow first milk to subsidise the fm nestle mens price from your basic cheese price? Nestle have never ever made it public that its actually them that pay the premium .First milk had to do this to stop most of south ayrshire from leaving a few yrs ago.

Joules.. You must be with a basket case Co-op if they can't set their own price and rely on others to fix a price, what's the point in being with the,. do the process milk and add value ?
 I did not say I was happy with a cr*p price but as long as there are Directs happy to goad Co-op members when their new price is still below the cost of production, it will hold everyone's price back.
This crazy "Na Na Na Na Na We are still better that you lot" attitude will help no one, its what's killing the industry. I thought that the NFU had us all working together !!! Seems not!!

I quite agree with the basket case co-op it really annoys me they cannot set their own price. However we are sticking with them as they make stilton cheese which as a PDO theoretically should generate reasonable margins and divs. Not always the case, esp in current cut-throat market, but it means they will always need milk from our area as it can't be made elsewhere.

Ayrshire Cowboy Were you not one of the producers who put their resignation into Wiseman and then wanted a Nestle contract from FM did not get one and then went back Grovelling to Wisemans ?
Just think back what happened when you all resigned about 75 of [sign in to see URL] price went up thats the power and the only power you directs have. USE IT remember they are paying upto 40p on the spot market !!!!

Yes i was one of the 40 or so but i knew fm nestle where full and will continue to be full because the contract is a sham! Word on street fm are planning something big soon i hope its a merger with united or someone as they are too big to be niche and to small for europe or the world. ps only pulling your leg wi the flag !!

I see it has not taken long for Muller/Wiseman to break the Code of Conduct !!!
Offering an extra 1ppl but you only get it after you have produced for one year, so the Code did not last long !!So much for agreeing to 3 month notice period !! Locked in for a year!! :GE: :GE: :GE:
Any producer who is thinking about this must have a short memory and cant remember who it was that tried to take 4ppl off producers last summer emoticonOH:
