The stepwise calculation of the maximum price for milk quota: carefully fixing the quota price



The stepwise calculation of the maximum price for milk quota: carefully fixing the quota price



Praktische Tierarzt 75(9): 752-754



As a result of the free trade of milk quotas in Germany, many dairy farmers are faced with the problem of determining how much they should pay. This paper presents a calculation method to solve this problem. In the example, the maximum price varies between DM 0.60 and DM 2 per kg of milk quota, depending on the situation. High prices transfer the profitability from dairy operators to quota owners.
