Glanbia holds on 34c/l

Glanbia and Town of Monaghan are to remain on their 34c/l (VAT inclusive) prices for February milk supplies, both processors confirmed this week.

The move follows Connacht Gold's decision to cut its base price by 1c/l to 33c/l. However, the western co-op is to pay an early calving bonus of 1.7c/l for February and 1.5c/l for March.

Meanwhile, a meeting of Wexford Milk Suppliers last Thursday to elect seven new members to the board of the co-op was described by one supplier as "subdued".

Those elected include Michael O'Neill (Gorey area), Eamon Devereux, Alan Simmons and Padraig Hayes (Wexford area), Tom Nunan and Michael Murphy (New Ross area) and Padraig Doyle (Enniscorthy area).
