Dairy Farmer Preferences for 2012 Farm Bill

Dairy policy is a contentious part of farm bill negotiations. The dairy title of the next farm bill has been discussed since 2009 with many novel policy proposals considered. This research utilizes best-worst scenario analysis to analyze dairy farmer preferences for policy options including eliminating existing dairy policies, implementing new dairy policies related to income support and growth management, ending ethanol subsidies and ending all dairy policy programs. Results indicate that large and small herds had differing preferences with large herds overwhelmingly preferring to end ethanol subsidies while small herds preferred to implement support for income over feed costs.
