Competitiveness of Dairy Producers in a Deregulated Market

No 232553, Staff Papers from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics

Abstract: This study determines the competitiveness of dairy producers in different production areas in a deregulated market. A nonlinear mathematical programming model minimizes the total costs of producing milk and shipping to the final consumer. Low-cost producing states like California, Wisconsin, and Texas will expand production in a competitive market and other states close to consuming centers can also compete .
