Prices fell again on the Global Dairy Trade auction on Tuesday night.

The auction concluded with the GDT price index down 0.7 per cent.

The average price dipped below the $US3000 a tonne mark for the first time this year to close at $US2980/tonne.

The fall was led by the key whole milk powder index, which was down 2.2 per cent to $US2821/tonne.

The butter index also fell sharply, down 2.8 per cent.

But some commodities bucked the trend with cheddar up 4.2 per cent and skim milk powder up 2.2 per cent.
