Milk price changes

Updated 4 December 2019

The latest publicly announced milk price changes as reported by the processors.


Most milk buyers have announced a hold in contract prices for December. There were two announced price changes recorded by AHDB; a 0.40ppl decrease to the Arla Direct Manufacturing contract and a 0.60ppl decrease for Wensleydale suppliers. A handful of buyers are yet to declare December prices.

Looking ahead to the New Year, both Barber’s and Saputo/DCD are holding their January price.

The lower number of announced price decreases reflects a relative balancing in market returns towards the end of summer, when an increase in SMP wholesale prices helped counteract declines in fat prices. Our Milk Market Value (MMV) indicator, based on UK wholesale prices, suggests a fairly stable outlook for Q4 pricing.
