Dairy co-op First Milk has announced that it is holding its milk price for July 2020 at its current level.

This means that the FM liquid standard litre will remain at 26.75ppl, whilst its manufacturing standard litre will remain at 27.63ppl, both including its member premium.

Commenting on the announcement, vice chairman and farmer director Jim Baird said: “The backdrop of uncertainty resulting from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic means that it remains hard to predict the likely impact on milk prices going forward. Despite this, we will continue to do all we can to provide as much stability as possible for our members, whilst working to maximise returns.”
