July 2021 Fall Incentive Days – REVISED

The BC Milk Board, in conjunction with the other Western Milk Pool (WMP) provinces, approved a decision to remove all incentive days issued for August and September. The WMP market analysis has determined that the impact of seasonality of fluid milk sales, weather (drought),  imports due to trade agreements and the slow recovery of the hospitality and service industries are affecting current demand. The P5 is also experiencing the decreased demand for dairy products.

The WMP continues to closely monitor the milk supply and demand situation and will respond as required based on the market signals. An update regarding October and November incentive days will be provided towards the end of August.

The updated schedule of issued quota and incentive days in 2021 is as follows:

August                0 day(s)

September         0 day(s)

October              3 day(s) *under review

November         3 day(s) *under review
