Milk Auction Up Again

24 May 2010

NORTHERN IRELAND, UK - Milk prices have risen again in Norhern Ireland, with the highest ever price recorded this May.

Prices have risen by 0.45 pence per litre to 26.53 pence per litre.

Ulster Farmers' Union (UFU) Deputy President Harry Sinclair said: "We are going through a period of stable prices which is so important for producers who have suffered from severe price volatility in recent years. However the UFU believes the dairy market is very strong at present and we will continue to press our processors to maximise the returns from the market place and ensure the best possible farm gate price is released to producers who still have to contend with high costs of production”.

In Brussels the EU Commission Dairy Management Committee has decided in light of the current market situation to open the sale of skimmed milk powder and butter from intervention by tendering procedure.
