    I see a difference between organic and conventional on seasonality on the cards.

    I had to work out my average milk price for January to August 2016 for the EU claim form - quite shocking. Safe to say most people, ( but not all of course), posting their prices on here were in a different world.

    Heres a good question...(I think) Arlas seasonality is self funding, with an amount used for the volume bonus.

    This year it sounds like there is an awful lot of spring milk being heavily penalized, how do they know how many litres they are going to have both spring and Autumn to redistribute the money.

    Ie if there is a lot of spring litres and very little Autumn surely there will be money left over?

    Was told recently that one of the guys in SW Scotland is on 23p with yew tree, not so good when the farmer has to cover haulage charges by the mile.

    Ye that's what they sign up for, if ur calving predominantly in the back end it suits going to yew tree with the better price in the back end, 31 pence they were getting when we were getting 23 in October/November!

    You have to take the rough with the smooth,when he was getting 32p in November 16 he wouldn't be complaining.

    Going to be interesting times for yew tree, the former Sorn Milk guys can hand in notice in June. Think one or two might get snapped up by other processors.

    Graham's have dropped milk price but not sure by how much.

    I've always been on a 3month contract with Yew tree,they have to be right with you or your off.

    The Sorn Milk guys agreed to move on mass and have a set period before they can leave which is June. After that I think they are just the same as you.

    Admittedly this may have changed and you might be better informed if you are supplying them.
