Prices have again risen at Fonterra’s GlobalDairyTrade auction, but at a more subdued level than in previous events.

The GDT price index was up 1.7 per cent on Wednesday morning (NZT) with the average price up to $US2975 ($NZ4070) per tonne. It is the fourth successive rise with previous increases at the fortnightly auction ranging between 6.6 and 12.7 per cent.

However, the price for key whole milk powder, Fonterra’s main product, was down 0.2 per cent to $US2782.

So dairy is up in general, and whole milk powder is holding at current prices.

Not that the Media Party want you to know this.  They describe an 0.2% change as

Always with the doom and gloom…

Mind you, it does explain that they get sticky knickers every time Labour and the Greens manage to gain a percent in the polls.

Economic conditions remain stable for a relatively uneventful general election.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
