Evaluation of the Environmental Impact of Milk Quotas 

The aim of this study is to examine the environmental impacts of the different systems for allocation and transfer of milk quota under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in individual Member States of the European Union (EU). It seeks to identify the ways in which differences in the implementation of milk quota regimes can impact on various sectoral and farm management trends and associated environmental implications.
