    Abstract

    Switching to organic farming: the economic repercussions for Aver Heino The economic repercussions of a switch to organic farming on Aver Heino were investigated by modelling, using technical data for 1997 (conventional farming) and 2000 (organic).Compared with 1997, in 2000 the net farm profit was € 7,300 lower. This is c. € 2.3 per 100 kg milk.In the organic scenario of 2000, the costs of labour, feed, contracting and land were € 52,530 higher than in the “conventional” scenario of 1997. The extra labour costs were estimated to be c. € 30,000, but the reliability of the labour records is questionable. However, in the organic scenario the costs of livestock and crops were more than € 5,400 lower.
