Global Dairy Prices Fall For Second Consecutive Month

Global dairy prices fell for the second time in a row at the latest auction held today (Wednesday 5th June), after previously experiencing ten consecutive increases.

The drop was due to strong supply as prices eased off after a long rally at the beginning of the year.

According to GDT Events, the GDT Price Index fell by 3.4%, with an average selling price of $3,423 per tonne.

The index fell 1.2% at the previous sale.

A total of 19,874 tonnes was sold at the latest auction, an increase of 28.1% on the last auction.
