Fonterra's Farmgate Milk Price falls, revenue rises
Spierings said Fonterra is confident of meeting its full-year forecasts following revisions after the recent Danone announcement. Sales volumes were down 20 percent and the gross margin, of 16.7 percent, was also lower.

More than 200,000 people have already been evacuated from Ventura and Los Angeles counties and now mandatory evacuation orders are in place for some portions of the well-known Bel-Air neighborhood.

Evacuation has been ordered for almost 27,000 people due to the wildfires, and about 240 people stayed in a shelter overnight Monday, according to officials. "The Red Cross would not be able to fulfill its mission of alleviating human suffering if not for these wonderful volunteers, especially during a year of such unprecedented disasters as this year". Once in Southern California the crew will meet at the Red Cross shelters, assisting with whatever task is asked of them.
