The IFA National Dairy Committee will publish its 2021 milk price analysis this Thurs (April 7th) at an open online meeting of dairy farmers.
The Chairman of IFA’s National Dairy Committee Stephen Arthur said the purpose of the analysis is to allow farmers to compare prices paid by milk processors on a like-for-like basis.
“The analysis, completed by the Committee with our Senior Dairy Policy Executive Aine O’Connell, demonstrates the revenue a spring calving herd, with average monthly milk solids, would generate. It compares 12 milk processors across the country for 2021,” he said.
The analysis is completed using actual monthly milk statements provided to IFA by members.
This is the second year of the analysis which is designed to give farmers objective information on the price paid by their processors, adjusted for milk constituents.
IFA will announce the results of the analysis during an online meeting this Thurs, at 8.00 pm. You can register for the meeting here.
In addition to the milk price analysis, Tadhg Buckley will deliver a summary of IFA’s recommendations to the Food Vision Dairy Group.
Karol Kissane will deliver a presentation on the expected impact that increased farm input costs will have on dairy incomes in 2022.
