The Future of Milk Quota : Different Scenarios

15-01-2008

The objective of the study is to obtain an overview of the possible policy options for the phasing out of the milk quota scheme and the accompanying measures which could help to ensure a 'soft landing' for the industry should quotas be phased out in 2015. Specifically, this study analyses and assesses these policy options and accompanying measures on the basis of their feasibility with particular attention paid to their economic, social, regional and budgetary implications and provides recommendations on the best possible (mix of) policy option(s) and accompanying measures for the dairy sector.
