Six drops in a row for Global Dairy Trade auction

Global Dairy Trade auction prices have continued their downward drift from highs seen earlier this year, recording a sixth consecutive fall, with prices across the board down 3.6 per cent from the previous event.

Whole milk powder - which has the biggest influence on Fonterra's farmgate milk price - fell 3.0 per cent to an average US$3864/MT, while skim milk powder - Fonterra's second biggest reference product - dropped 7.0 per cent to an average US$3126/MT.

The biggest declines, however, came from Butter Milk Powder, which was not offered at the previous event and fell 9.8 per cent to an average US$3298/MT and cheddar, which slid 9.2 per cent to an average US$3949/MT.

Butter, which had been hovering above the US$5000/MT mark earlier this year, softened a further 3.2 per cent to an average US$4458/MT, while Anhydrous Milk Fat dropped 0.9 per cent to an average US$5632/MT.

Lactose remained stagnant on an average US$1238/MT.
