Aurivo, Centenary and Strathroy have become the latest milk processors to reveal increases to their February milk prices.
Starting with Aurivo, the board of the western cooperative had a meeting yesterday (Thursday, March 18) to set its milk price, a spokesperson for the co-op said.
In a short statement, the representative said:
The board of Aurivo Co-op has increased its base price for February by 1c/L to 34.65c/L inclusive of standard bonuses and VAT at 3.3% protein and 3.6% butterfat.
“This is equivalent to 37.79c/L at EU standard constituents of 3.4% protein and 4.2% butterfat.”
It was highlighted that the Aurivo price includes a 1.5c/L early calving bonus for February.
“The price reflects the current firm dairy market conditions,” the spokesperson concluded.
Meanwhile, Centenary has decided to increase its milk price for February by 2c/L to 33.1c/L including VAT.
Finally, Strathroy has confirmed an increase of 1.4c/L in the base price for February milk sent in by suppliers.
This follows milk price announcements from Arrabawn, Dairygold and Kerry Group earlier this week, with all processors to date revealing a boost to February prices.
