For this purpose, a simple random sample of 200 dairy farmers was collected, and respective questionnaires were completed. Then, the effective factors were determined by the use of multinomial logit model. The study results showed that in the first and third marketing channels, the product was led to milk factory while in the second and fourth marketing channels; it was delivered to the final consumer. In addition, the findings showed that change in payments caused the farmers trust local raw milk purchasers in the county more than the intermediaries while with milk prices rising, livestock breeders preferred them to sell their products; also, by increasing milk production, they preferred mediator elimination and by increasing the distance to the sales center, the likelihood of milk transfer to the plant increased.
