Abolition of the EU milk quotas and dairy farmers’ productive strategies

Abstract : A bio-economic model is developed to measure the productive, economical and environmental impacts on French dairy farms of the milk quota abolition. While respecting the principle of agent rationality (maximization of profit), the model incorporates the economic risk related to the volatility of input and output prices. Thus, the model maximises the expected utility of income while taking into account a set of constraints: regulatory, structural, zootechnical, agronomic and environmental. Simulations show that French dairy farms have a strong production potential but this increase in milk volume results in an intensification of the production system and has negative effects on the environment.
