AEM 3040 - Dairy Markets and Policy Seminar


     
Spring. 2 credits. S/U grades only.

A. Novakovic.

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.

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.
