Change In Milk Price

What Has Changed?

25th February 2020

While the Coronavirus has had a minor impact on the global markets, this has been offset by the exchange rate. The domestic market remains competitive having a positive impact on your milk price.

It has so far been an exceptional season for our farmers from a production perspective and we hope that this will continue through into next season which is just around the corner.
