  • NZ dollar drops to four-year low on concern low Fonterra payout will dent economy

    The New Zealand dollar dropped to its lowest in more than four years on concern about the outlook for the economy after Fonterra Cooperative Group yesterday announced a low payout to dairy farmers. Fonterra yesterday cut its forecast payout to farmers for this season by 10 cents to $4.40 per kilogram of milk solids, from a record $8.40/kgMS last season, and said it expects to pay $5.25/kgMS next season as prices for dairy products stay lower for longer than expected. Dairy products are New Zealand's largest commodity export and the weaker payout is expected to dent economic growth this year.

  • NZ dollar heads for 2.4% weekly drop

    The New Zealand dollar is heading for a 2.4 per cent weekly drop against the greenback as comments by Federal Reserve officials revive expectations the world's biggest central bank will hike interest rates this year. With investors also wary of the New Zealand economic outlook, the kiwi sank to 71.32 US cents at 5pm in Wellington from 73.11 cents on Friday in New York last week. Fed chair Janet Yellen last week said she expected interest rates would start rising this year, prompting investors to focus more closely on US economic data so as to second-guess when the Fed will start lifting the federal funds rate.

  • Mystery of holes in Swiss cheese cracked after a century

    Eureka! After about a century of research, Swiss scientists have finally cracked the mystery of the holes in Swiss cheese. Experts from Agroscope, a state centre for agricultural research, said the phenomenon -- which marks famous Swiss cheeses such as Emmental and Appenzell -- was caused by tiny bits of hay present in the milk and not bacteria as previously thought. "It's the disappearance of the traditional bucket" used during milking that caused the difference, said Agroscope spokesman Regis Nyffeler, adding that bits of hay fell into it and then eventually caused the holes.
