Expected economic effects of BST in the Netherlands

Expected economic effects of BST in the Netherlands

Agricultural Economics 3(3): 231-248

The calculated profitability of using Bovine Somatotropin (BST) on typical dairy farms in the Netherlands ranges from Dfl 160 to Dfl 300 per cow per year, assuming 1985 prices and circumstances, and ignoring the costs of BST. A 20% increase in milk production and no change in the feed/milk ratio were used for the calculations. BST is more profitable in intensive farms or on farms with more opportunities for alternative uses of land, buildings and labour.
