May milk prices confirmed

Our May milk prices have reduced by between 0.10ppl and 0.35ppl.

"After total increases of 10ppl since last summer, it is disappointing to have to reduce our milk price. However, consistent with our business operating model, we will continue to pay a milk price that relates to our returns."
