That’s more like it. Farm news that hasn’t aged yet (with the great advantage it is good news).
Alf’s morning blog browse took him to Homepaddock where he learned:
It’s not enough to get out the champagne but it could justify a celebratory milkshake – the front end contract price in Fonterra’s latest milk auction rose 14.7% in US dollars.
Take the exchange rate into account and that’s an 18.5% increase in New Zealand dollars.
Well done, girl. You’ve made Alf’s morning. Tararua cockies just might be prepared to shout him a beer on the strength of this – although, on second thoughts, all that stuff about the ACC blowout might require Alf to do the shouting just to mollify them.
