Dairy farm expansions in the Netherlands and the EU and their impact on economic results are the focus of this report. After expansion successful expanders realize better results for nearly all types of revenues and costs. The high investments by expansion of Dutch dairy farms during the period 2000-2007 do not seem detrimental to their competitiveness compared to neighboring EU countries. However, they increase the risk of liquidity problems during periods of low milk prices.
