Record milk payouts for milk powder will become a thing of the past, if an Agriculture and Forestry Ministry forecast released yesterday is accurate. This season the dairy payout will average $6.90 per kg of milksolids across all dairy companies - $1 less than Fonterra's record $7.90 last season - and then drop back to $6 for the next few years, the ministry's economists say in their latest "situation and outlook" report.
