NEW ZEALAND BUTTER
GREAT MARKET IN WESTERN
(Per Press Association.)
AUCKLAND, March 11. Mr Wm. Goodfellow, managing director of tho Waikalo Co-operative Dairy Co., who has just returned from an extensivo tour of Western America, states that Western Canada offers a tremendous market for New Zealand dairy produco, which is rapidly coming into favour everywhere there. A large number of- -traders, Jhowever, fako New Zealand butter by adding 10 to 15 per cent, moisture, and causing a corresponding depreciation in value. Mr Goodfellow himself, and a number of merchants to whom he talked in America, wer6.emphatically of opinion that the New Zealand Government should station an official in Western Canada to protect tho interests of New Zealand dairy farmers and exporters, and stir up the Canadian Government to prosecute those who now so flagrantly transgress the Canadian regulations. While Mr Goodfellow was in Canada the manager-of the Byron Bay Company, the largest dairying enterprise in New South Wales, and in the Southern Hemisphere, was engaged in a similar tour, and he publicly declared that next season an attempt will be made to establish Australasian butter in the Canadian market. Very little dairy produce from the Commonwealth has yet teen shipped to Canada, but efforts are being made to secure a reciprocal tariff, so that Australia will be able to trade with Canada on terms as favourable as those enjoyed by New Zealand.
