Asaf ÖZALP [1] , İbrahim YILMAZ [2]


Agriculture has a different status on economies of many countries, thus it is necessary for ensuring the country’s continuous economic growth and development. One of the most important factors for achieving economic sustainability and social and technical success of the agricultural sector is the gathering of producers under cooperatives. Agricultural cooperatives have their histrorical roots in Turkey. It is difficult to say that cooperatives are active at the desired level even if the number of cooperatives and member seems high. This is related with problems faced by cooperatives. The aim of this study is to reveal the problems faced by cooperatives engaged in milk collection activities in the Western Mediterranean Region of Turkey. 100 cooperatives that are active in the region were examined in this study. 100 questionnaires were conducted with the cooperative managers and 212 questionnaires were conducted with the members and a total of 312 survey results were obtained. The problems of the cooperatives examined in the study were grouped under three main headings as milk collection and sales, feed purchases and sales and problems related to the operation of cooperatives.
