Title : Providing milk agricultural farms with the production means
Key words : milk production, agricultural farms logistics, providing with production means
Summary :

A survey concerning provision of milk farms with production means in Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship was carried out in 2013 in the group of 80 farmers. Based on the survey, it should be stated that farmers define themselves their purchase needs and they start with planning the material needs. They search the market for possible suppliers and then place an order with a selected contractor. In the end, after they receive goods, they evaluate the quality of the service. Farmers more eagerly place orders via Internet. The research shows that farmers have high negotiating skills because they always ask for discounts when ordering. They also negotiate terms concerning orders, when they order big batches and control the received raw materials in order to evaluate the service. In milk farms maintaining the liquidity of supply in production means is significant. The research shows that more than half of farmers place orders a month before the stock depletes. Only a few farmers declared that they place orders for particular goods only when they need it. Some of them even were in favour of purchasing bigger batches in order to store the remaining part and avoid cyclic smaller orders.
