Cooper Norman knows the Dairy Industry! It’s one of our primary specialties, and we were honored to contribute data to Dr. Scott Brown and Daniel Madison’s report, “The Competitive Position of the Idaho Dairy Industry”.

The Competitive Position of the Idaho Dairy Industry Report

Cooper Norman is cited on page 9:

“The last dataset available to examine cost of production information was from the Cooper Norman CPA group. The data they have available on the Idaho dairy industry mirrors very closely that of USDA and Frazer, LLP. This data, figure nine, shows that over the entire 2008 to 2010 period, returns to Idaho dairy producers were squeezed.”

The referenced figure 9 appears on page 10:
