Germany: FARMGATE PROFIT HANGS IN THE BALANCE

German farmgate milk prices are almost covering milk production costs for the first time since 2014, according to German producer organisation MEG Milch Board. They say the average milk price has increased by 3.16c to 40.35c/kg in the past 3mths, covering 98% of the average cost of milk production, which was up 0.32c to 41.3c/kg. As milk prices start  to fall again MEG have issued a warning that farmers are fuelling the next market crisis.
