Dairygold prices for crops
Other trade buyers must follow Dairygold’s prices for green grain, oilseed and protein, said IFA President Joe Healy, after the co-op said it will pay up to €160 for grain and €360 for oilseed.
I FA N a t i o n a l G r a i n Committee Chairman Liam Dunne said, “Other grain buyers should sit up and take note.
“Unless they are prepared to work with their growers to sustain them through prolonged difficult periods, tillage farming will disappear from vast areas of the country.” Dairygold prices at 20% moisture, inclusive of premium based on minimum purchase terms, but excluding 5.4% VAT, include €145 for barley, €153 for wheat, €140 for oats, and €160 for contract malting barley.
T h e p r i c e i s € 1 6 3 fo r contract beans, €160 for noncontract beans, and €360 for oilseed rape at 9% moisture.
