            New Zealand looks set for another 4% increase, and practically so is Australia.

The world economy is in the dumpster and so its rather unlikely that any users will struggle to find their requirements unless they have very special needs.......

            It's awfully dry in the USA and finally it is having some impact on milk production. What was looking like a bumper year is likely to end up slightly down, while input costs will end up higher.

The pipelines though are still quite full & after a flurry of excitement in the markets, most people are realising that there's still an awful lot of stuff about.
