Csaki and Forgacs focus on the characteristics of small farms in both Central Europe and the former Soviet Union countries. Van der Straeten et al. explore the growth possibilities of the Flemish dairy sector with the outlook of a quota abolishment as a case study of this policy shift. Sanders et al. aim to identify and assess the impact of the CAP reform on the relative profitability and production structure of organic farms in Germany. Revoredo-Giha and Leat draw on a survey of Scottish beef and sheep producers undertaken in mid-2006. Kirner et al. present two theoretical approaches to explain the persistence of small dairy farms in Austria: the opportunity cost principle and the theory of the agricultural household.
