Dairygold has increased the September quoted milk price. The base price will increase by 0.75c/l to 34.95c/l at 3.3% protein and 3.6% fat, excluding VAT.

A Dairygold spokesperson commented: “Global milk supply has eased over the past few months and the supply outlook to year-end will be more modest.

“Combined with COVID-19 recovery continuing, dairy demand has picked up in recent weeks, with markets firmer.

“The Dairygold board will continue to monitor markets closely and review milk price on a month-by-month basis.”
