Typification of Dairy Farms According to Criteria of a Socioeconomic Nature: An Illustration in "El Paramo" of Leon (Spain)

The impossibility of carrying out an individual analysis and of finding solutions for each agricultural business, makes advisable the use of classification techniques that allow the identification of groups with common characteristics. The aim of this study is clustering dairy farms in an agricultural region located in the north of Spain, known as "El Paramo". To this end, a survey has been carried out on a representative sample of dairy farms, and subsequently, a Cluster Analysis has been made, which has resulted in five groups of farms being clearly defined from a social and economic point of view.
