Dairy commodity prices tumbled at Fonterra's overnight online auction, with the globalDairyTrade trade weighted index falling 8.2%, and the average winning price down to US$4443 (NZ$6064) from US$4826 a fortnight ago.
The decline came amid a broad sharp fall in commodity futures, with the Reuters-Jeffries CRB index on course for its biggest daily slide in four months on fears Japan's nuclear crisis could turn into a larger catastrophe.
At the Fonterra auction, the trade weighted price for anhydrous milk fat fell 4.5% to US$6111, skim milk powder fell 4.6% to US$3816, and wholemilk powder dropped 11.4% to US$4105.
BNZ said the decline was broadly as expected, and prices were still up 17.5% for the year and likely to stay at favourable levels for some time.
