The bonus for milk with an average TBC less than 50,000 which applied heretofore has now been incorporated into the base milk price and the penalties adjusted accordingly. Also the Bonus paid to shareholders has been incorporated into the milk price and No longer appears on your milk statement. These changes have been made to demonstrate the value of milk solids, the share holder bonus is No longer required, it was there originally to encourage all milk suppliers become shareholders, this is now the case and any new milk supplier is required to purchase shares in proportion to their milk supply.
