This report summarizes the results of the 2002 Dairy Cost of Production survey implemented by The University of Maine and the Maine Milk Commission. Funding for this report was provided by the Maine Milk Commission. Analysis and discussion of the data in this report centers on four major groups called clusters. Cluster analysis attempts to identify groups of farms from within the sample of survey respondents that have relatively homogenous characteristics.
