Abstract

This paper focuses on the choices of producers in dairy systems in the department of Cantal in a particular context. The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) of Cantal cheese meets some difficulties concerning the upgrading of the price of milk and the modifications of its specifications. The analysis concerns the choices of farmers confronted with two alternatives, namely the choice of a dairy to collect their milk and the choice of processing milk at the farm. By using the transaction costs theory and a survey with farmers, we show that the contractual relations between farmer and dairy and the uncertainty of the milk price are determining for the choice of the dairy, whereas processing requires specific investments that are very costly.
