Abstract

This paper examines the agllomeration hypothesis: i.e., firm productive efficiency is increased by closer proximity to other firms. Using a stochastic input distant function with heteroskedastic inefficiency effects, we find that the density of Ontario dairy farms has a significant positive economic effect on production efficiency. The finding has implications for understanding agricultural firm location and farmer led efforts to preserve agricultural farming activities in some regions.
