2018/19 milk price increase in Southern Milk Region
We are pleased to announce a step up in our farmgate milk price for the 2018/19 season for all suppliers of Warrnambool Cheese and Butter (WCB) and Saputo Dairy Australia (SDA) in the Southern Milk Region.
- Butterfat - 7 cents per kilogram
- Protein – 14 cents per kilogram
This payment is retrospective and applies to all qualifying milk supplied by current WCB and SDA suppliers from 1 July 2018. The payment will be made with January 2019 proceeds during February 2019. This increases our average farmgate milk price for the 2018/19 season for suppliers in the Southern Milk Region to $6.05 per kilogram milk solids (up from $5.95 per kgms).
