LAKELAND AND GLANBIA BOARD MEMBERS COMMENDED FOR SUPPORTING AND MAINTAINING MARCH PAYODairy
IFA National Dairy Chairman Tom Phelan has commended the Lakeland and Glanbia board members for finding a way to maintain the March milk payout,, thereby supporting farmers in these difficult times.
He urged other co-ops, all of which have achieved good increases in their 2017 profits, to follow the Lakeland and Glanbia example.
Mr Phelan however pointed out that the conditions that have faced farmers for March supplies are continuing to this day, and this must be borne in mind by board members when deciding future milk prices.
