Abstract Within the Dutch dairy farm sector, farms are growing almost continuously in size. Each year new farms start developing and carrying out a growth plan. A growth plan requires investments. The return of these investments is different for each plan. This study dealt with the causes of these differences. The study was done with data on two groups of eight farms. The first group combined growth with a large increase in economic performance, while the results in the second group showed a strong decrease. Key question of the study was: what are the causes of the differences in economic performance in growth between these two groups?
