The Causes of Economic Inefficiencies in New York Dairy Farms
Thomas, Arthur C.; Tauer, Loren W.
Technical and overall cost efficiencies are measured for 125 New York dairy farms. Explanatory models of efficiencies are estimated to determine how farms can increase their efficiencies. Changes in efficiencies are explained by changes in both assets and prices. Efficiency levels are explained by farm and operator characteristics.
