The board of Carbery co-op has decided to hold milk price for May at 30.8c/l excluding VAT. This will be replicated across the four co-ops; Bandon, Barryroe, Lisavaird and Drinagh.

Lakeland (29.7c/l), Glanbia (28.9c/l), Kerry (28.9c/l) and Aurivo (29c/l) all held milk prices for May.

The IFA has expressed disappointment in the lack of price increases, despite a rise in Ornua's purchase price index (PPI) last month.
