    A weaker New Zealand dollar is a boon for farmers

    A weaker New Zealand dollar is a boon for farmers, offsetting recent drops in Fonterra's dairy payout

    ASB Rural Economist Nathan Penny says dairy production's also likely to be up over the season.

    Exporters have benefited from a fall in the dollar - from 74 US cents to 65 - this year.

    Penny says that'll make up for slightly lower dairy price - but things are still looking fine.

    He says they've forecast the payout will be six-dollars 50, which will mean the majority of farmers are still making money.
