    Uittreksel

    Absence of a clear definition of low-input dairy farming prevents answering questions about their competitiveness. This paper presents a pragmatic approach, based on available EU Farm Accountancy Data of 2004-2012, to distinguish a low input quartile from a high input quartile in each EU country. The value of external input costs per grazing livestock unit is used as prior discriminating indicator. Low input dairy farms are clearly smaller and less productive than high input farms, which overall results in lower outputs. Both direct and fixed costs are, however, also lower, which ends up in a comparable profitability.
