Organic Dairy Sector Evolves To Meet Changing Demand

William McBride and Catherine R. Greene

Amber Waves:The Economics of Food, Farming, Natural Resources, and Rural America, 2010, 6

Abstract: Declining demand for organic products in response to the economic downturn has slowed the rapid growth in organic milk production. Economic forces, primarily lower production costs, may be pushing organic dairies to be more like conventional dairies in terms of size, location, and the types of technologies used. More specific pasture requirements for organic certification proposed under USDA’s National Organic Program may affect how the organic milk production sector evolves.
