WATCH: Glanbia Co-op’s 2018 Trading Bonus Scheme

Dairy GII All

Glanbia Co-op’s 2018 Trading Bonus Scheme will reward farmer members of the Co-op for purchases made from their own business, Glanbia Ireland.

For milk supplier members of Glanbia Co-op, the new 2018 Trading Bonus is potentially worth up to 0.75 cent per litre (cpl) on all milk delivered in 2018 (Table 1). For grain growers, a Trading Bonus of up to €10 per tonne of grain supplied is available for 2018.

As shown in Table 1, the Milk Supplier Trading Bonus is worth up to €3,750 to a 500,000 litre supplier spending over 7 cpl with Glanbia Ireland this year. All 2018 purchases made from Glanbia Ireland – feed, fertilizer, veterinary medicines, dairy hygiene products and farm hardware etc – are included in the calculation. At the end of 2018, the total spend will be divided by the total litres of milk delivered to generate a cent per litre input spend.

Beef, sheep and pig farmer customers of Glanbia Ireland that are Co-op members will also qualify for a Feed Bonus on their tonnes purchased this year. The 2018 Feed Trading Bonus will be €10 per tonne on Beef and Sheep Feed products purchased from Glanbia Ireland, with €5 per tonne available to Co-op Members on purchases of pig feed and Straights.

Straights, Beef & Sheep feeds purchased by dairy farmers will qualify for the Feed Trading Bonus and will also be included in Milk Supplier Trading Bonus calculations.

The Trading Bonus Scheme is funded from Glanbia Co-op’s 60% share of the dividend paid by Glanbia Ireland to its shareholders in January 2018.
