Milk Price


The ICMSA Milk Price Tracker takes the form of a detailed tables – detailing the latest (monthly) milk prices from the most Irish dairy co-ops. This is run in conjunction with Agriland each month.

This tracker will be available on a month-by-month basis – enabling suppliers (dairy farmers) to track prices paid right across the industry.

Not only does the tracker enable a supplier to see what his or her own co-op is paying, but they also provide visibility of what competing co-ops are paying – on a like-for-like basis.

It is important to note that the cent-per-litre (c/L) milk prices – shown in the tracker – are calculated using the widely-accepted milk pricing system (an approach employed by most Irish co-ops).

Moreover, the Irish c/L milk prices – quoted in the table – is a base price at the ‘standard’ fat and protein percentages cited by most co-ops (i.e. 3.3% protein and 3.6% fat).

We also include base prices at ‘standard’ European criteria (i.e. 3.4% protein and 4.2% fat).

The Maximum Attainable Price show the price that a farmer would receive if all qualifying bonuses were achieved in that given month.

This data has been sourced from suppliers’ milk statements and may be subject to updates/clarifications.
