DAIRY CO-OP First Milk has announced that its member milk price will increase by 2.14ppl from September 1, 2022.

This will take its milk price on a manufacturing standard litre to 48.64ppl, including the member premium.

Commenting on the increase, vice chairman and farmer director Robert Craig said: “The dairy markets appear to be stabilising somewhat and we continue to do everything we can to recover returns from the marketplace and deliver these to our members as quickly as possible, recognising the considerable inflationary cost pressures our members face.”
