Milk pricing and payment options

Burra Foods' maintains it commitment to deliver premium prices to our farm milk supply partners, thanks to the strong returns from our stable business model.

But for us good business is more than just paying a premium for milk, it’s about keeping our farm milk supply partners informed with reliable, real time information and through the ongoing building of strong partnerships for the long term.

All our farm milk supply partners are offered a choice of three transparent and easy to follow payment options, allowing them to select the one most suited to their individual production system:

  • APS (Alternating Payment System) – Traditional payment structure that is lower during spring months then alternates, increasing on a monthly basis from Jan-Jul.  Typically suited to split calving herds.
  • BPS (Burra Payment System) – A two-tiered system, payments remain the same for fat & protein from July to December then increases by 25% at the start of January and remain the same through to the end of June. The Burra Payment System provides a less complicated milk payment typically suited to year round milking herds.
  • FPS (Flat Payment System) – Fat & Protein payments remain the same each month.  Designed to align income with production and is typically suited to seasonal calving herds.

Milk payments are always made on or before the 15th day of each month and are never late.
