The project provides a thorough policy impact analysis of the EU dairy markets in the year 2020 regarding the removal of milk quotas within the framework of the Health Check of the CAP. A rigorous update of the CAPRI model and database has been undertaken, including an updates of the base year, an econometric estimation of marginal costs and quota rents and a validation against expert data and medium-term projections on dairy commodities provided by DG AGRI. A key finding was that the quota rent information is the dominating modelling input for the results.
