The Potential for Structural Change in the Northeast Dairy Manufacturing Sector

A transshipment model of the Northeast dairy sector is developed to assess the potential for structural change in the manufacturing industry.

Industry-wide savings of about 60 million dollars annually would be realized by fluid, soft product, cheese and butter/powder manufacturers. The model points to finn level as well as industry level incentives to move toward a more concentrated dairy manufacturing sector in the Northeast.
