Lakeland Dairies tops the NI milk league for August supplies, halting the table-topping run of seven consecutive months by Tirlán, formerly known as Glanbia Ireland.

A 1.5p/l increase for August put Lakeland in a commanding position which others were unable to match. The Lakeland starting price at 47.5p/l, was almost 0.5p/l ahead of the base price of its nearest competitor.
