ZMP Live Expert Opinion

The rapidly increasing milk production in the past few months has led to a significant weakening of the commodity and product prices. The corrections in the milk money, however, were so far very moderate for milk producers. In response to the high prices, levy willingness of producers is consistently high. When also the milk delivery in the near future seasonal comes back, the previous year's level should be exceeded also in the coming months. When the product markets under this condition can recover, significantly depends on the further course of the demand.
