New Brunswickers can expect to pay more for milk in September.
According to an issued statement by the New Brunswick Farm Products Commission, milk prices will climb by 6.5 cents per litre on Sept. 1.
The commission said the increase helps dairy producers and processors deal with the rising costs of animal feed, machinery and repairs, fuel, oil, custom work and hired labour.
It is the second increase in milk prices this year after the Canadian Dairy Commission hiked milk prices in June. The commission said this second increase will impact consumers.
The commission said pricing for New Brunswick’s school milk program, however, remains unchanged for the upcoming year.
