7 February 2019

Finally, some green on the screen for skim milk. To be honest, prices for skim are all over the place, with some sellers still asking significantly higher numbers, but some very limited profit-taking (limited as there is very limited profit to take) has pulled down the headline number by €20 or so.

No change in whey, but the useless fact of the week is that sweet whey prices in January 2019 pretty much exactly matched those of January 2107. In 2017, the march higher continued, but this year there seems scant probability that whey will rise again imminently. Sterling is edging back down towards its special place in hell and isn’t likely to head seriously north again until something other than no deal is agreed.
