Weaker $A lifts export index slightly

THE Australian dairy export index recovered a little ground this week, after commodity prices remained unchanged other than for Whole Milk Powder (WMP), which lost US$25/t to average US$2,375/t.

The gains in the barometer came entirely from a weaker A$ late last week ahead of the expected lift in US interest rates. The weaker dollar lifted the index by 3 points to 157.3, a 2% rise.

Note: - The index is an indicator of spot trends in gross export returns to the Australian dairy industry based on quoted Australasian dairy commodity export spot prices, movements in currency and the mix of total milk usage in product exports by the Australian industry.

This index was set at 100 on 1 January 2000. Visit for more details.
