A record 6c/l gap has developed between the best- and worst-paying milk processors in Ireland. The latest Irish Farmers Journal/KPMG Milk Price Review shows that Lisavaird paid the top net milk price in 2016 at 30.51c/l, some 6.15c/l more than LacPatrick’s price of 24.36c/l.

This equates to a €300/cow difference in the price paid to Lisavaird and LacPatrick suppliers.
