Better times ahead for Dairy Farmers?
More good news for dairy farmers, as both First Milk and Arla have raised the milk price for their farmers.
Arla have raised their milk price for its 2,700 British farmers by 1.6p per litre, while First Milk have raised theirs by 2p per litre – the largest increase for nine years.
However, the NFU has warned dairy farmers to look past the headlines and ensure they read the small print in their contracts, as many will be offered new contracts as the value of milk continues to rise.
