To gain a better understanding of the spatial dimensions of the declining number of Wisconsin dairy farms, the entry and exit behavior of farmers was analyzed at the township level over the past four years. This paper reviews recent patterns of entry and exit behavior and illustrates the role which farmers moving their operations or adding additional herds have had upon this activity.
