Fonterra payout forecasts follow auction prices down


Forecasts for Fonterra’s 2011/12 and 2012/13 payouts have fallen following last night’s 10% plunge in prices on the company’s global dairy auction system.

According to the 6000 registered traders on New Zealand’s online predictions market, iPredict, the 2011/12 payout per kilogram of milk solids (before retentions) is now likely to be $674, down $0.07 from the $6.81 forecast when iPredict last reported on Monday.

The 2012/13 payout forecast has been harder hit, and is now just $6.14, down $0.35 or 5.4% from the $6.49 forecast on Monday.

Forecasts for the following three out-years were unaffected by the overnight developments and sit at $7.42 for 2013/14, $7.50 for 2014/15 and a rough early estimate of $7.69 for 2015/16.
