Abstract

This paper reviews studies analyzing the determinants of spatial dynamic dairy production. The review distinguishes three dimensions that may contribute to spatial dynamics: farm level determinants related to factor endowment, technology, and production costs; developments and differences at the dairy sector level; and spatial differences in public policy. Spatial dynamics is influenced by both, structural change and regional production change. Still, research analyzing both issues in context is still scare. We argue that research focusing on the co-evolution of farm structure and regional production could help to better encompass regional production change dynamics.
