FIERRO, Natacha; CARRERA, Rubén  e  ORDONEZ, Jorge. Family milk production systems in the Ecuadorian Amazon comparative performance of the different typologies. Novasinergia [online]. 2020, vol.3, n.2, pp.108-123.  Epub 01-Dez-2020. ISSN 2631-2654.

In this work, family milk production systems are individual agricultural operations of a reduced but not limiting extension with herds' size that can be handled by the family. The structure and functioning of different typologies identified in previous work were quantified to determine needs and intervention strategies. Canton Centinela del Condor, Zamora Chinchipe, Ecuador, is located southeast of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Mountainous terrain, warm and humid climate, and a predominance of agricultural activity characterize the region. The land, mostly privately owned, supports 0.80 AU/ha, 19 AU per farm, and produces 4.1 liters of milk/cow/day, on average. The participant population was 42 producers that provide milk for the same dairy. They voluntarily completed 27 forms. XLSTAT-Base3DPlot 2.0 of Excel 2007 performed descriptive statistics, ANOVA, and Fisher LSD test to distinguish between typologies. The Ecoanálisis form was applied to estimate financial results, cost/liter, and equilibrium prices. The budgeting to analyze the dairy economy is simple, valuable to the producer, allowing comparing the productive and economic performance of different rationales. In a formal market, milking is competitive. Conglomerates are not different, productive, or economically. Only some incorporated techniques make the differences; such changes contribute in similar proportion to costs and revenues without affecting Profit. Such poor results lead to the interruption, lack of diffusion, and testing of alternative options in an itinerant process of trial and error. To achieve the adoption requires integrating the application of knowledge to the economy.
