    Govt promises as little as possible on housing WoF, hoping to sweep dead baby under carpet:

    How China’s Taste for Milk Actually Hurt the Value of New Zealand’s Cows

    Fonterra CEO Theo Spierings said in an interview that he saw signs that Chinese buyers were “getting back into the market,” but volumes were much lower. He expects whole milk powder prices to recover to US$3,500 a metric ton by April or May of next year, still well short of levels reached early last year.

    “I don’t see that anything has changed in the demographics, with the middle class and the aging population increasing,” Mr. Spierings said of the longer-run outlook.

    That’s what Fonterra thinks but this:

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture isn’t so sure that prices will recover.

    “The surge in Chinese demand in 2013 and into 2014 was the result of several factors including rapid reduction in domestic production,” the USDA said in a May report on the New Zealand milk industry.

    “It may take several years for Chinese demand to match the levels reached in 2013 and 2014, which suggests that export price recovery, which will make a significant difference in farmgate prices, may be slower than many farmers and commentators are hoping for.”

    It’s interesting how two different organisation can have two totally different ideas about the same ‘market’ when they’re working from the same data and both could be wrong.

    TV3 Management are a gang of highly paid, idiotic, prejudiced, clueless, corporate RW Nut jobs with lots of dough (including tax payer bail outs from this National Government!), but not much of brains, fairness or guts! A disgrace of a fourth estate, a supposed fourth pillar of democracy!

    Must have been some pretty dramatic polling to get the PM on to Native Affairs tonight to face the best prepared and most fearless journalist we have left, the wonderful Mihi Forbes. He looked very uncomfortable.

    • maui 4.1

      He just wanted to rub it in I guess, “Look, I got rid of you too. Now to get rid of those pesky weekend morning programs.”

    • ianmac 4.2

      I just posted a comment on Open Mike about the brilliant Mihi interviewing a tired scared looking Key on Native Affairs last night on Native Affairs. Repeats Wed 10:30pm.

    Yes – another poor bugger didn’t get home from work today and another family weeps. How many dead bodies will the Government walk over before opening their ears to Helen Kelly’s words of wisdom?

    • mickysavage 6.1

      No it is the last bunch of tax cheques being paid. The budget should drop back into deficit in the last few months.

      • stigie 6.1.1

        Are you hoping Mickysavage ?

        • mickysavage 6.1.1.1

          Nope just conscious of the tax flows that happen. May’s tax take will probably be OK but June will drop off.

      • arkie 6.1.2

        Right. Thanks, I’m finding the whole financial aspect hard to unpack. I worry though that this is an effective piece to argue that they’ve met their longstanding surplus promise?
