Milk supply problems
Arrabawn and Dairygold are the only two co-ops to officially come in under quota in our survey of milk supplies to the end of June.
The rest of the co-ops range from +5.1% to an 'on quota' position in Connacht Gold and Lakeland.
All west Cork co-ops are between 2.5 and 4.2% over quota.
Of the big players, Glanbia are 2.5% over and Kerry are 0.9% (2 million litres) over to the end of June.
However, recent wet weather has seen milk supplies crashing in all regions.
Compared to the previous week, supplies are down 6.5% in Dairygold, 6% in Wexford, 4% in Arrabawn and up to 5% in some west Cork co-ops.
Compared to the same week last year, Glanbia are down 7% in weekly supply.
