Research on dairy
It encompasses the application of econometric estimators and economic simulation models, while being closely related to our research line on structural change and dynamic adjustments in agriculture.
- Three projects funded by the German science foundation (DFG):
- Understanding spatial interactions and structural change in the dairy production chain with a dynamic regional Agent Based Model covering dairy farms and dairy processing (2015-2018, applying an Agent Based Model of structural change, PIs Wolfgang Britz and Thomas Heckelei)
- Analysis of dairy production systems differentiated by location (2012-2015, PIs Christine Wieck and Thomas Heckelei)
- The relation between indicators for the crediting of emission rights and abatement costs - a systematic modelling approach for dairy farms (2011-2015, PIs Karin Holm-Müller and Wolfgang Britz), in co-operation with the Chair of Resource and Environmental Economics, completed dissertation by Bernd Lengers on The relation between indicators for the crediting of emission rights and abatement costs
- A dissertation by Yvonne Zavelberg focusing on the competition in the dairy processing sector
- Spatial competition in the dairy sector, common work between Christine Wieck and visiting scientist Claire Mosnier from INRA, UR1213 Herbivore, Clermant-Ferrand during 2010-2011
- Article about comparison of regional dynamics across selected regions by C. Mosnier and C. Wieck
Organized Session at EAAE Congress 2011 on "Spatial competition in the dairy sector" with two ILR contributions:
- Discussion paper on "Determinants of spatial dynamics of dairy production: a review" by C. Mosnier and C. Wieck
- Analysis of milk quota reform scenarios by Markus Kempen and Peter Witzke (2007-2010)
- Dissertation project of Christine Wieck on determinants, differentiation and development of marginal costs (finalized 2005).
- Medium-term analysis of the prospects of the Spanish dairy sector after Agenda 2000 and Mid-Term Review by C. Wieck, I. Perez Dominguez and W. Britz (2003)
- Improvement of the representation of the dairy sector in the CAPRI model by C.Wieck and W. Britz (2002-2003)
