Herd size and unit costs of production in the England and Wales dairy sector



Herd size and unit costs of production in the England and Wales dairy sector



Journal of Agricultural Economics 41(1): 9-20



This paper examines the relationship between herd size and unit costs of production in the England and Wales dairy sector. Following the two-stage estimation procedure of Dawson & Hubbard (1987), long-run average cost (LAC) functions are estimated from cross-section data for five separate years between 1976/77 and 1986/87.
