No 20410, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Markets for horizontally differentiated products with differential costs are important and have unique features. This paper studies sellers' pricing strategy and market equilibrium in these markets under various competition scenarios in the context of retail milk markets. An empirical study is also conducted to examine the effects of cost factors on retail milk prices and to characterize competition in markets in four California cities.
