This course is a survey of topics related to: 1) the structure and performance of U.S. dairy markets; and 2) federal and state policies that regulate market activities. This is not a course in how to market or sell farm milk or dairy products, although we will discuss some topics related to marketing and dairy demand analysis. Policy sections emphasize understanding why regulations were created and how they impact market activity, as well as describing what they do. Subject to instructor approval, a 1-credit special project add-on can be designed for undergraduate or graduate students who want to develop a deeper understanding of dairy markets or dairy policy.
