This report is one of a series of coordinated studies of dairy marketing problems in the Northern Great Plains. These studies have been made by various states cooperating in the North Central Regional Committee on Dairy Marketing Research (NCM-12) and financed partly by regional research funds. The Plains States subcommittee, consisting of representatives on the regional com:rpittee from South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa, has had primary responsibility for this research. This research has focused on the general problem of economic adjustment in the dairy industry in areas of sparse production.
The adjustments being considered include those which can be made in farm handling practices for milk and cream, which are related to cream quality; in methods of milk and cream assembly; in price payments and price relations; in the form in which milk is sold off farms; and in the processing and merchandising of dairy products. The objective of the research is to determine the economic feasibility and desirability of these various adjustments.
