Fonterra’s September milk production rose 0.4% YOY to 179.8mkg of milksolids, bringing season to date collection 1.6% ahead of the season prior.

Collections in the North Island were up 1.2%YOY in September, up 2.0% for the season to date despite extremely dry conditions in the Upper North Island, as rainfall was less than half of normal rainfall in the region. South Island intake was down 1.0% YOY for the month as heavy snowfall in the Southland/Otago region hampered milk collection.
