Organic (ORG) and low-input (LI) dairy farms may have environmental advantages compared to high-input (HI) farms, but may also be less competitive in economic terms. This paper focuses on resilience in relative profitability of ORG and LI farms compared to HI farms in EU countries. Both a trend and a shock scenario were developed, based on milk and feed prices during 2007-2012. Although LI farms greatly vary among the EU countries, they tend to be more resilient than HI farms when assuming trend conditions. Moreover, they seem less affected by extremely low prices. ORG farms appear even more resilient in comparison with HI and LI farms but this can be explained by the higher revenues from subsidies.
