     Whole Milk Powder - Oceania

     Report 37 - Released on September 12, 2019

     Oceania whole milk powder prices are a bit lower. New Zealand observers do not expect much
     price movement either way, at least not until final September or October production data
     becomes available. New Zealand seasonal milk production typically peaks in early October.

     With Australia prioritizing sending available milk into SMP and butter production, at the
     expense of WMP, New Zealand remains the primary focus of Oceania WMP activity.

     Milk Powder
     Price Range - 26% Butterfat; $/MT:                     3,025 - 3,225
