Transportation in agriculture - the case of bulk milk hauling



Transportation in agriculture - the case of bulk milk hauling



Farm Economics (July): 4



The recent evolution of the bulk milk hauling system in the USA is described and ways in which current problems might be solved are examined.

Local hauling rates should reflect the true cost of transport, including regional variations due to labour costs or type of terrain covered.
