Carbery is the latest processor to announce its November milk price, remaining unchanged from October at 30.74c/l, excluding CAT.

The price includes a 1c/l support payment from the co-op's stability fund.

“If this decision is replicated across the four west Cork co-ops - Bandon, Barryroe, Drinagh and Lisavaird - this will result in an average price for November of 30.74c/l, excluding VAT,” a spokesperson for Carbery said.

The price is exclusive of Somatic Cell Count (SCC) or any other adjustments which may be made by the co-ops.


Lakeland, Glanbia and Kerry have all lifted November milk price, while other co-ops are meeting this week to set price.

Glanbia lifted 0.5c/l for November, with a biodiversity bonus to take it to 29.9c/l, excluding VAT, at 3.3% protein and 3.6% fat.

Lakeland introduced an unconditional 1c/l November bonus to take it to 31.6c/l at 3.3% protein and 3.6% fat.

Kerry also decided to lift milk price by 0.5c/l for November to take it to 29.9c/l, excluding VAT at base solids.
