The Economics of Milk Production

The Dairy Cost Study is an economic analysis of the costs and returns of a sample of Alberta dairy producers for a given production year. Study participants are required to complete monthly survey forms regarding their dairy production activities - dairy herd inventory, capital purchases, milk sales and farm use, feed use and purchase costs, labour costs, and other expenses related to the dairy enterprise - and an annual form on their dairy investments. From this database, weighted sample averages are calculated which represent benchmarks for all dairy producers in the province. The Economics of Milk Production is the reporting of these benchmarks with further analysis provided.
