P5 Additional Production Days


November 1% Quota Increase and More Days

Quota Increase

The P5 Boards have approved a one per cent producer saleable quota increase effective November 1, 2017.

Incentive Days Conventional and Organic

The P5 Boards have approved that one additional incentive day be issued per month on a non-cumulative basis to all producers for the months of November 2017 to March 2018, inclusive.

The P5 Boards have approved that three incentive days be issued per month on a non-cumulative basis to Ontario and Quebec certified organic shippers whose milk is marketed as organic for the months of April 2018 to March 2019, inclusive.

Market Demand
This decision is intended to ensure P5 milk production continues to fill all current demand, as butter stocks have not reached their target level of 35,000 tonnes. Demand for dairy products and P5 processing capacity continue to increase and will be closely monitored.
