Pulling back the curtain on milk price

ADPF President speaks with ABC Victorian Country Hour on why we haven’t seen a milk price step-up this season.

We are currently experiencing the highest levels of profitability in Australian dairy farming in many years. This terrific turn of events has been driven by high milk prices and good seasonal conditions.

However, Australia’s major dairy processors are being put under enormous pressure to provide a step-up in farmgate milk price.

Our President Grant Crothers explains to ABC Victorian Country Hour the economic factors and current market conditions behind the milk price and defends the lack of any price step-ups from the major processors.

Grant also explains how the Milk Value Portal, which was launched in November 2020, is the industry’s key source of transparent market information impacting farmgate milk price.
