Dairy farmers enjoy another milk price increase
The Board of Lakeland Dairies has increased the co-operative’s milk price for August.
In the Republic of Ireland, Lakeland Dairies has increased its base milk price for August by 0.5 cpl to 36.5 cpl, including VAT, for milk at 3.6% fat and 3.3% protein.
In Northern Ireland, Lakeland Dairies has increased its milk price for August by 0.3p/litre to 29.5p/litre.
"There continues to be a reasonable level of balance between supply and demand in the global dairy markets at present, with some fluctuations due to the effects of the ongoing pandemic," said a spokesperson for the Cavan based Co-op.
