ZMP Live Expert Opinion

With more than 40 CT / kg on average the dairies have paid out 2014 a milk money at record levels for this time of year in the first quarter. For the second quarter, the price level will remain relatively high, although some reductions in consequence of weaknesses in product markets will be unable to prevent. Should the markets following a sustained volume of milk does not recover, clearer price corrections for producers are expected in the second half of the year.
