Effects Of Proposed Trade Barriers For Milk Protein Concentrate And Casein Imports On The U.S. Dairy Industry

Tight import barriers cover many milk products, but import quotas or prohibitive tariffs have not covered imports of a variety of high-protein specialty products. These products without tariff rate quotas include various casein and milk protein concentrate products. In recent years, imports of milk protein products into the United States have received increasing attention from U.S. dairy interests. A simulation model is used to study the effects of imports of milk protein products on U.S. prices and production of milk protein, on government purchases of dairy products, and on the production, prices and incomes of U.S. milk producers.
