  • Weak dairy prices prompt pull back in expectations for payout to NZ dairy farmers this season

    Weak dairy prices have prompted analysts to pull back their expectations for Fonterra Cooperative Group's payout to farmers this season, with most forecasts now sitting below the dairy exporter's projection. Continued weakness in dairy prices is being driven by increased supply from New Zealand, Europe and the US amid lacklustre demand in China and an import ban in Russia. Fonterra, which accounts for the bulk of whole milk powder sold on the GDT, lifted its volume on the platform in the latest auction as New Zealand production increases in the lead-up to peak supply in October.

YPG spokesman Redur Xelil said Islamic State fighters were repelled overnight after they briefly wrested control of an area on Tel Abyad's eastern periphery.
