GDT 204 Medium term cloudy?

A robust start to the year across financial and commodity markets the USD excepted:

It has been a fairly busy first 2 weeks in global markets featuring robust equity and commodity market performances and significant USD weakness.

In a sense the latter is the more important factor for the NZ rural community with offsetting impacts.

GDT #202: last auction of the year

The last auction of the year and this will be a relatively brief commentary as I have a hectic few days ahead and I have less to say!!

Ahead of the last auction I said:

“I expect another flattish to soft auction but I am hoping for something positive”

Agriculture offers true or too good to be true?

When in the business of producing investment offers, as is MyFarm, it is critical that we get the forecasts as ‘right as possible’. We can only rely on the information to hand - inevitably the returns in the rural space are dependent on assumptions on three things; production yield, product returns and costs of production.

Agri Globe - 13 December 2017

  • Micoplasma bovis found in Hawke’s Bay
  • Commodity Milk Value slides to $5.03
  • US cheese exports continue to grow
