    Re: NI milk price

    39 million sold.

    Contracted months of Oct, Nov and Dec are down 4 million litres each on same months last year, or ten-ish percent.

    Lots of silage being traded, culling ongoing, and feed rep reporting november to be a very busy month. I suspect that there is a physical limit to what can actually be transported over to the liquid market, which would mean the higher volume sold this month would dilute the benefit of the good spot price, even if same volume was still going to spot.

    Thoughts?

    I would tend to agree. I think the culling will continue and the price of silage go up and up and up... think it will have a big impact on production winter going to tough all round.

    What is silage going at round your way? per bale or ton?

    I beleive they,re leaving on the first. January. Milk price tied to uniteds price. Not a great way to structure their price

    If the best thing they can think of doing with their reserves is to bribe producers to supply them then they can't have much of a business plan. It suggests desperation to have to throw those reserves out to get people to sign up. Further fragmentation of the market can't be good for producers in the medium to long term.

    some sense here.
    As I have said previously on this thread, please learn some lessons from what we have gone through on the mainland, don't allow yourselves to get broken up by the lure of 1ppl.
    we have only just got back to the price we had in the early nineties now.

    I know I don't need to tell you that, over the long term, industries tend to one thing - consolidate. Very occasionally, a small fish manages to swallow a big fish. Usually though, its the other way around.
