Abstract : The purpose of this study is to compare competitiveness of dairy farms supported and non-supported by IPARD program in the province of Konya in Turkey that has an important place in milk production, by using “Competiveness Index for Dairy Farms (CIFDF)” which was created within the scope of the study. The main material of the study is dairy farms supported and not supported by the IPARD program which had milking cows between 10 – 120 head in Konya. Full count sampling method was used when determining the dairy farms supported by IPARD Program and Neyman allocation sampling method was used when determining the dairy farm non-supported by IPARD program. Research data were collected from 50 dairy farms supported by IPARD program and 100 dairy farms non-supported by IPARD program by administering a questionnaire filled during the face-to-face interviews conducted with each individual respondent. The sample volume was determined on the number of milking cows collected and calculated with a 95% confidence limit and 5% error margin.

Considering socio-economic characteristics of dairy farms, the family labor force was predominant in those non-supported by IPARD program while the foreign labor force was predominant in those supported by IPARD program. Accordingly, the active capital and the equity values of dairy farms supported by IPARD program were four times higher than those non-supported by IPARD program. Gross production value, gross product, net product, gross profit, net profit and agricultural income falling to the Declaration and BBHB were much higher in dairy farms supported by IPARD program than those non-supported by IPARD program. In dairy farms non-supported by IPARD program, unit milk cost average is 1.33 TL / Kg and average milk selling price is 1.36 TL / Kg. In dairy farms supported by IPARD program, unit milk cost average is 1.19 TL / Kg and average milk selling price is 1.43 TL / Kg.

When CIFDF and sub-index values of dairy farms supported and non-supported by IPARD program, were compared; those supported by IPARD program had 0.72 CIFDF value and successful level while those non-supported by IPARD program had 0.53 CIFDF value and critical level. According to these results, the competitiveness of dairy farms supported by IPARD program was higher than the those non-supported by IPARD program. When the sub-index values were taken into consideration, dairy farms supported by IPARD program had a higher score on all sub-indices other than the capital efficiency sub-index.
