North Cork and Boherbue co-ops raise June prices

Both North Cork Creameries and Boherbue co-op have moved to raise their milk prices for the month of June, it has been confirmed.

Following a meeting of its board, North Cork Creameries has decided to increase its milk price by 1c/L.

This means that North Cork suppliers will receive a price of 30.5c/L including VAT for June milk, based on constituents of 3.6% butterfat and 3.3% protein.

Meanwhile, Boherbue has increased its milk price by 0.4c/L; this means suppliers will receive 31c/L including VAT for last month’s milk.

These are the latest co-ops to reveal their hands for June milk.

Earlier June price announcements

Yesterday, Monday, July 20, northwest-based cooperative Aurivo also announced a boost to milk price, revealing an increase in milk price of 0.5c/L following a board meeting.

This means that a base price of 30.5c/L including VAT will be paid for June milk.

Meanwhile, last week Arrabawn revealed its June price last Friday, July 17, announcing a 1.5c/L increase on the May figure.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Arrabawn said:

The Arrabawn board has decided to increase its milk price for June by 1.5c/L to 30.5c/L.
