- Is your B price following the market?29 November 2016
As spot milk and commodity market prices rise, farmers on A&B pricing are asking how the spot milk price should reflect in their B price. AHDB previously looked at the impact of spot milk prices on the wider market. The volume of milk being sold on the spot market is extremely small, and using it as a guide to B prices is therefore difficult. Of more relevance is how B prices are moving alongside commodity market prices or AMPE. This is because any spare milk available in the country can be converted into butter and SMP, provided there is enough processing capacity for those products and the milk processor has no other market outlets for the milk. There is certainly enough capacity at present.
