Abstract
New York milk supply functions with and without bovine growth hormone (somatotropin) were estimated by a sector linear programming model. High government price supports make bGH profitable and induce significant increases in output. Reduction or elimination of price supports greatly diminishes bGH as a viable technology except with high-producing herds or at low bGH prices.
