An extra twist on the May milk price has pushed Dairygold Co-op ahead of the west Cork co-ops for May. Leading the pack over May milk volumes will please all Dairygold milk suppliers.

Most of the co-ops, including the west Cork operations, lifted April milk price by 2c/l but Dairygold, Aurivo and Arrabawn went that little bit more and increased milk price by almost 2.5c/l lifting them in among and ahead of the west Cork co-ops’ base price.
