interesting issue for policy makers. The objective of this paper is to investigate technical
efficiency and technical efficiency change of specialized German, Dutch and Swedish
dairy farms and to compare their relative productivity. Three subsidy-related variables
are introduced to reflect the wealth and insurance effect and the coupling effect of
Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) subsidies. Our results imply that a higher degree of
coupling in farm support negatively affects farm efficiency, and the motivation of
farmers to work efficiently is lower when they depend to a higher degree on subsidies as
a source of income. Our study indicates that the composition of subsidies has a much
smaller effect on efficiency than does the composition of total farm income. Relative
productivity scores show that German and Swedish dairy farms have potential for
improvement in productivity, compared to the production technology in the
etherlands. In conclusion, it is questionable whether farm income support of CAP
since the 1992 CAP reform is suitable to achieve its goal to increase farmers’ overall
competitiveness by improving their efficiency.
