Abstract

Following the transition to the market economy in 1989 and the accession to the European Union (EU) in 2004, the Polish dairy sector has undergone fundamental adjustments in response to the domestic and external conditions. The adjustments, among others, involved the modernization, ownership transfer, and the exchange of the genetic pool (Urban, 2004; Seremak-Bulge et al., 2005; Szajner, 2009; Bórawski and Kowalska, 2017). As a result, the cow herd size shrunk considerably, while the yield per cow increased, and milk production decreased less than one could expect given the change in cow number. Those trends, which started in 1990, continued after Poland joined the EU. The purpose of this study is to analyse the changes in the number of dairy farms with the aim to identify the factors that could explain their evolution.
