First Milk announces 0.8ppl price increase for August

First Milk has announced a price increase of 0.8ppl from August 1.

 

It takes the First Milk price on a liquid standard litre to 28ppl, whilst the manufacturing standard litre will be 28.95ppl.

 

Weather

 

Jim Baird, Vice Chairman and farmer director, said: “This increase will be welcomed by members and will go some way towards helping to offset the additional costs caused by the continued hot weather.

“There have been two key changes in recent weeks affecting the dairy markets - the hot and dry weather is bringing some uncertainty over UK and European milk production, and, although still relatively strong, markets have shown signs of weakening in the last six weeks.

 

“As always, we remain focused on maximising member milk price and delivering the best returns we can.”
