AEM 3040 - Dairy Markets and Policy Seminar


     
Spring. 2 credits. S-U grades only.

Attendance is mandatory for a satisfactory grade.

A. Novakovic.

Dairy markets and policy will be discussed from the perspectives of applied economics, industrial organization, marketing, supply chain coordination, and public policy analysis. Lectures are twice weekly in a format intended to encourage class participation. This course may be offered simultaneously at other universities, where participation will be by video. As such, class assignments may involve student partners at other universities. Subject to instructor approval, an additional 1-credit can be earned for an optional assignment to develop a dairy business marketing plan. This would be done under AEM 4970 .

Outcome 1: Learn where to access data and information about dairy markets and policy and how to interpret publicly available information.

Outcome 2: Develop knowledge and understanding of federal dairy programs and key elements of the dairy supply chain.

Outcome 3: Improve ability to analyze dairy market interventions and the possible roles of the public sector in regulating competition.
