Milk ex dairy farm; with quotas
(Mælk fra mælkefarm; med kvoter)

Milk is produced at dairy farms. Milk is in excess in the market due public regulations (quotas) and milk production is within certain limits independent of the market demand. Hence, a marginal demand for milk ex dairy farm does not influence the extent of milk production processes at the dairy farm and the environmental impacts associated with milk ex farm are zero. See Weidema (2003) and Jensen and Andersen (2003).
