MARKETS FOR IRISH DAIRY PRODUCTS REMAIN STRONG
Commenting on this week’s GDT auction results, which saw a further 8.9% fall in the average price of traded commodities, IFA National Dairy Committee Chairman Sean O’Leary said the main markets for Irish dairy exports were the UK and Europe, where prices were holding up well at still quite high levels, which should underpin current milk prices for some time yet.
