Abstract: 

BACKGROUND: The Subsidy Reform Plan (SRP) was implemented in 2010 in order to replace the subsidies on energy, food and etc with targeted social assistance.
OBJECTIVES: Given the importance of dairy industry in human nutrition, the aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of ISRP on the efficiency and productivity of dairy farms.
METHODS: Data were collected from a sample of 65 industrial dairy farms by using proportionate stratification sampling method, through face-to-face interviews based on a structured questionnaire. The calculation method of efficiency and productivity respectively are data envelopment analysis (DEA) and Malmquist index.
RESULTS: The results show that respectively decrease and increase in technical and allocative efficiency of farms. In addition, farm productivity has declined in this period, but there was no significant difference between periods. There were significant differences between productivity and technical, allocative and economic efficiency of farms with different size. Furthermore, farms with more than 1,000 head of cattle has been less affected by the ISRP.
CONCLUSIONS: In order to improve the dairy farm productivity and efficiency, and the farmer’s motivation, it is important to removal of the output price distortions and enhancing farmers' access to input markets.
