Quota News & Information

P5 Messgae - Fall Incentive Days

The disruption caused by the COVID-19 health crisis continues to be reflected in the dairy market. The P5 quota committee continuously monitors the evolving milk market situation, as provinces gradually relax restrictions, to react to any possible COVID-19 related transportation or processing disruptions. Due to a significant number of P5 producer inquiries, the P5 Boards are advising that at this time there is no change to the non-cumulative Fall 2020 incentive days previously announced; Aug – 1 day, Sept – 2 days, Oct – 2 days and Nov – 1 day. The P5 board’s primary objective is to continuously monitor the milk market situation and meet milk market demand in the most optimal way. Given these uncertain times we will continue to adapt production signals to address market changes, as required.
