Flooded Northland roads disrupt milk pick-up

3:03 pm on 21 March 2012

Dairy co-operative Fonterra says it is still unable to reach eight farms in the Far North to collect milk due to road closures caused by flooding.

Those farmers disposed of Tuesday's milk through effluent systems to make room for milking on Wednesday.

Fonterra says the bad weather has not disrupted milk collections anywhere else in New Zealand.
