Economics and Competitiveness
The Economics Section at Alberta Agriculture and Forestry conduct the on-going annual survey of dairy enterprises over the course of one year. This survey is called the Dairy Cost Study. This study tracks the cost and returns information on milk production in Alberta. It is a valuable benchmarking tool for dairy producers as well as other dairy industry partners.
The research is compiled and results are published in The Economics of Milk Production.
The objectives of this publication are:
How to Participate in the Dairy Cost Study:
- To provide a current and continuing account of the costs and returns of milk production in Alberta,
