    Dairy farmers have six months to decide on a capital restructure for Fonterra

    Dairy farmers have six months to decide on a capital restructure for Fonterra

    Options include buying back the Fonterra Shareholders' Fund, which has been capped in the meantime.

    The co-op's chief financial officer, Marc Rivers, says the board will get feedback from farmers around the country from next week.

    He says the aim is to decide on a preferred option that can be voted on at the Annual General Meeting in November.

    Any restructure would require 75 percent support from farmers and unit holders and need a law change.
