Farm-gate prices of milk

Italy is one of the milk producing countries in the EU-28.

The volume of the Italian milk output does not meet the domestic demand needs and therefore this lack is absorbed by imports from Germany and France, the major European producers.
Given this, it turns out to compare farmgate milk prices in force in three selected regions i.e.:
- Lombardy (Italy);
- Bavaria (Germany);
- Rh�ne Alpes (France).
For that reason this page provides with:
  • a comparison graph among the farm gate Milk prices of the above mentioned Regions;
  • tables with related prices.
A look at the prices here below highlights that Italy ranks on the top of the graph i.e. high raw milk price levels.
This is mainly due to the use of Italian milk that, unlike other Countries, is destined to a large extent (approx. 45%) to the production of typical cheeses (PDO).

These typical cheeses are characterised by high standard quality and are often considered unique by the consumer. To note that Italian farmgate milk is also the result of a specific feeding of the cows. All these factors lead to have remarkable high farmgate milk prices in Italy.
