Re: Milk price


The last two milk auctions of United Dairy farmers were [sign in to see URL] and [sign in to see URL] respectively.

This represents a drop of about 2p below the same months last year.

If the trend continues into the spring we are looking at a farmgate price of around [sign in to see URL], provided our buyer doesn't continue to subsidise the spring price from the winter price.

I don't know of many that will stick around for much of that?

Re: Milk price


Arla are dropping the price by .9 of a penny for Feb/March.
I'm getting tired of being treated like dirt.

They complainabout rising input costs due to the price of oil etc, but for christ sake we have the same cost increases! I agree it ridiculous. The problem is that we are the small guy in the food chain and we just get shafted as and when these companies please.

On a slightly related topic we heard that David Handley did not put his own milk down the drain before Christmas when he tried to co-ordinate the 3 days of non-supply. If that is the case this guy should remove himself from the negotiating table as I for one think that if the story is true then he is an arsehole and he cannot possibly have any credibility.

Re: …


I don't know where mr Handley is sending his milk now, as he has left First Milk.

I think being the self appointed chairman of FFA pays rather better than producing milk!!!!

Re: Milk price


Mark,

What will your base milk price be after the .9 deduction, and what constitutes base milk?

Re: Milk price


To discourage their suppliers from flooding them with extra litres in Feb/Mar, considering a no levy situation?

Re: Milk price


But aren't we supposed to be short of milk.
Just a thought but how much (or little) would they pay if there was a glut
