In recent years, dairy production has been considered to be the most profitable farming activity in Poland. This study focuses on a sample of 40 randomly selected dairy farms from the north-eastern part of the Lublin province and compares their technical results. The research was completed in 2012 with a questionnaire containing 18 questions sent to the farm managers. The farms were classified into five production groups according to their annual milk sales. The largest research group accounted for 37.5% of farms; this group produced 100-250,000 litres of milk, with the average area of 47 ha and the average number of 30 cows. A large share of permanent grassland as a proportion of the agricultural area, and high stocking density on grasslands in the north-eastern Lublin province, indicate a change in the direction of grassland management.
