The milk price will drop by 1ppl to 28ppl from March 1
Muller said it followed an easing of returns over the past six months for products like cream and butter which trade in global commodity markets.
Rob Hutchison, Miller Milk Supply Director said: “Weaker dairy commodity prices coupled with higher levels of off farm production, are combining to put pressure on farm gate milk prices at the moment.
“We continue to place a focus on adding value to the milk that we buy by increasing the portfolio of Muller branded and private label products we make.
“This gives dairy farmers greater protection from the full impact of these cyclical market challenges.”
