The link-up with Glanbia Milk is looking good for the members of Fivemiletown Co-op, judging by August milk prices. At almost 28.5p/litre, their price in the NI milk league for the month was a good 2p/l above the prices paid by Glanbia Cheese and United Dairy Farmers (without Red Tractor bonus) for comparable milk.

These August league prices are after deduction of transport charges applicable to a supplier of 500,000 litres per year with average NI seasonality of supply and with average August milk quality of 3.98% butterfat, 3.24% protein, 4.62% lactose, TBC of 18 and SCC of 218.
