MoreMilkIT - Uncertainty in milk production study

The data for the study was collected in August 2016 at one of the MoreMilkIT project sites, Lushoto district, located in the north of the Tanga region in the eastern milk shed. The study relied on representative smallholder dairy farms as study units. Farmers who undertake commercial milk production and own the dairy enterprise were the primary criteria guiding the selection of representative dairy farmers for each gender category. Farmers were also selected based on their willingness and ability to provide accurate and substantial enterprise data. Impact of risk on cash flows was examined for a single cow for one lactation period (300 days), and the impact of uncertainty on investment decisions was determined using capital budgeting methods.
