• UK and EU dairy markets continue to strengthen significantly, as substantiated by latest AHDB market reports. The September Direct Milk DPO Newsletter reports on these latest market positions in detail, and of the resultant milk price improvement to apply from October.

    In addition, MM&I have confirmed the first stage in milk price equalisation between the two standard liquid prices, Direct Milk and MMG, also to apply from October – with intent to complete this equalisation at the next price change.

    Retail supplement payments from Aldi, Lidl and Morrisons continue to provide an extremely valuable contribution to support farmer payments – ‘thank you’ all.
