Wyke Farms has confirmed a flat rate supplement of 0.5ppl to be added to their milk price for August.
The increase from Wyke Farms is in response to the current challenging environment created by extreme weather. The company, whose farming side of the business is also suffering from the effects of the extraordinary weather, has shared concerns with local farmers regarding the quality and yield of crops.
Richard Clothier, managing director, Wyke Farms, said: “We recognise that the farmers are under a lot of pressure with forage crops failing because of the extreme weather conditions. We hope that the farmers will use the money to cover winter feed because it is becoming clear that many will be struggling to feed the cows over the coming months.”
