Dairy Farms Household Survey
The dairy farm household survey will address the objective of identifying barriers to adoption of profitable management practices and develop strategies to inform development of extension programs in West Java and North Sumatra. This activity will involve the collection and analysis of detailed farm-household level economic and financial data through a structured baseline survey. The data analysis will improve identification and understanding of farm-level profit drivers, management and technology options in relation to cost of production, contribution of dairy (milk and cattle sales) to household income, enterprise profitability and viability. Comparative analysis of technical options, labour use, risk and sensitivity analysis to price, input costs and other factors will also be included.
