Barbers holds price through 'biggest milk production month of the year'

After two months of consecutive price drops due to ‘mounting competitive pressure’ Barber’s has announced it will hold its price through May – ‘the largest milk production month of the year’.

 

It said 2018 had seen some ‘disappointing and widespread’ price reductions, with prices dropping at some processors by 4 or 5ppl. But Barber’s highlighted its reduction this year was only 2.25ppl.

 

“We will continue to keep our pricing under review, and hope that as a consequence of the very late spring and steady UK/EU milk volumes, will stabilise dairy markets.”

Looking at the markets, Barber’s said the stocks of skimmed milk powder in the EU still ‘cast a long shadow’ across markets ‘especially this side of the spring peak in EU production’.

 

“Expectations of a large seasonal flush though are reducing with each passing day of cold, wet and even snowy conditions as experienced during March.”
