Abstract

An analysis of costs and receipts associated with the production of manufacturing milk in El Vigia area of Venezuela was the focus of this study. A personal interview survey of a sample of dairy farm operators was conducted.

Averages for costs, receipts, and net returns were calculated by size groups . Tabular analysis was used to study relationships between size and other factors and net return.

Net return per cow was positive on the average, but the study indicated a general need for improved levels of production. Size of operation and capital investment were two factors found to be associated with higher net returns.
