Finally, some bad news


Labour are all cock-a-hoop as one of the nation’s economic indicators had a slight dip.

Prices have fallen by 3 per cent at the latest GlobalDairyTrade auction arresting a series of recent rises.

The decline is the first since July.

The price index achieved an average price of $US2880 per tonne down from $US2975 at the last auction two weeks ago.

Whole milk powder fell 3.8 per cent and there were also falls in skim milk powder, lactose, anhydrous milk fat, rennet casein, butter and cheddar. Only butter milk powder rose – gaining 9.3 per cent.

Our diary farmers really deserve a better recovery. ?Let’s hope this is a “rogue adjustment”.
