Dairygold is holding its current milk price for January at 30.65c/l excluding VAT.

An early calving bonus of 3c/l including VAT is also paid on milk supplied in the month of January.

A statement from the dairy processor said that this equated to a January farm gate milk price of 41.2c/l based on average January milk solids.

“Dairy markets remain relatively stable, with global milk supply and dairy demand remaining generally balanced not withstanding that COVID-19 restrictions has meant that the food service sales channel across all key markets remains at a complete standstill,” a statement from Dairygold reads.

Lakeland also held its milk price at 30.68c/l excluding VAT.
