Lakeland Dairies held off a late challenge from Dairygold to hold top spot for Christmas in the November monthly milk league.

Dairygold chair John O’Gorman and outgoing CEO Jim Woulfe put the milk price accelerator down with a 1.4c/l upward shift in price. However, it wasn’t enough to overtake Lakeland chair Niall Matthews and CEO Michael Hanley who have held top spot since August in the monthly league.
