  • 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.
