1:30 pm on 18 August 2011

Fonterra says milk collections in all parts of the country are back to normal, after three days of disruption due snow and ice making roads dangerous for tanker drivers.

about 1700 dairy farmers were left with milk in the vats on Monday and more than 2000 never heard the sound of a tanker arriving on Tuesday.

However, Fonterra says yesterday milk was collected from about 98% of farms on Wednesday, with only a handful in Otago not able to be reached.
