A Growth-Focused Spatial Econometric Model of Agricultural Land Development in the Northeast AgEcon
Hailu, Yohannes G.; Brown, Cheryl.
Using county data for West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, estimation of a system of simultaneous equations shows that population growth, higher taxes, high farmland value, and high initial per capita income accelerate farmland development, but return on farmland, government assistance to farmers, farmland conservation, and farming agglomeration reduce development pressure.

A Spatial Simultaneous Growth Equilibrium Modeling of Agricultural Land Development in the Northeast United States AgEcon
Hailu, Yohannes G.; Brown, Cheryl.
This study aims to understand the relationship between regional growth in population, employment, and per capita income, and agricultural land values and development in the Northeast United States. A system of spatial simultaneous equations is estimated using three-stage-least squares on county level data. Results indicate that regional growth positively influences agricultural land values and negatively affects the stock of agricultural lands. Farm performance and some farmland protection policies were not effective in preserving farmland. The study recommends that agricultural land protection policies could be better coordinated at a regional level and more effective if integrated within state economic development programs.

Adoption of E-Marketing by Direct Market Farms in the Northeastern U.S. AgEcon
Baer, Alexander G.; Brown, Cheryl.
Many farms have begun operating websites in order to promote their businesses. This study used data from a survey of farms in the northeastern U.S. for the year 2004 in order to identify characteristics of farmers, farms, and farm businesses associated with website adoption. Following a technology adoption framework, a Probit model of website adoption was estimated to identify significant relationships. Some sales locations and product types, advertising diversity, high speed Internet connections, and gross farm sales were found to be significantly related to website adoption.

Adoption of E-Marketing by Direct-Market Farms in the Northeastern United States AgEcon
Baer, Alexander G.; Brown, Cheryl.
Many farms have begun operating websites in order to promote their businesses. This study uses data from a 2005 survey of farms in the northeastern United States to identify characteristics of farmers, farms, and farm businesses associated with website adoption. Following a technology-adoption framework, a probit model of website use is estimated to identify significant relationships. Sales location, product type, number of advertising methods used, high-speed Internet connection, land tenure arrangement, and gross farm sales is found to be significantly related to website adoption.

Determining Consumer Perceptions of and Willingness to Pay for Appalachian Grass-Fed Beef: An Experimental Economics Approach AgEcon
Evans, Jason R.; D'Souza, Gerard E.; Collins, Alan R.; Brown, Cheryl; Sperow, Mark.
The focus of the current study was on the market potential for grass-fed beef in the Appalachian region, given that these products embody observed, experiential, nutritional, and process attributes that may appeal to a large consumer base. An in-store variant of the Becker-DeGroot-Marschack experimental auction mechanism was employed in the region to determine consumer preferences and willingness to pay. A majority of respondents preferred the grass-fed product over conventional grain-fed samples and were willing to pay a price premium to obtain it. Preferences for grass-fed were rooted largely in the associated superior nutritional content and core observed attributes.

Determining Consumer Perceptions of and Willingness to Pay or Appalachian Grass-fed Beef: An Experimental Economics Approach AgEcon
Evans, Jason R.; Brown, Cheryl; Collins, Alan R.; D'Souza, Gerard E.; Rayburn, Edward B.; Sperow, Mark.
The U.S. market for commoditized beef is a dynamic one that has, over the last 30 years, seen decreases in per capita consumption and an increased reliance on large, integrated feedlot facilities that focus on efficient weight gain and producing carcasses deemed desirable according the USDA quality grading system. Because of the problems inherent in the conventional production system and the existence of farm-to-retail price spreads that do not favor primary cow-calf producers, analyses of alternative beef production and marketing strategies that facilitate enhanced profitability and simultaneously address surging consumer demand for specialty food products are necessary. To that end, focus of the current study was on the market potential for grass-fed...

Evaluating the Economic Impact of Farmers’ Markets Using an Opportunity Cost Framework AgEcon
Hughes, David W.; Brown, Cheryl; Miller, Stacy; McConnell, Tom.
Farmers’ markets presumably benefit local economies through enhanced retention of local dollars. Unlike other studies, the net impact of farmers’ markets on the West Virginia economy is examined. Producer survey results are used in estimating annual direct sales ($1.725 million). Using an IMPLAN-based input-output model, gross impacts are 119 jobs (69 full-time equivalent jobs) and $2.389 million in output including $1.48 million in gross state product (GSP). When the effect of direct revenue losses are included (primarily for grocery stores), the impact is reduced to 82 jobs (43 full-time equivalent jobs), $1.075 million in output, and $0.653 million in GSP.

LANDOWNER DECISION MAKING ABOUT RIPARIAN BUFFERS AgEcon
Lynch, Lori; Brown, Cheryl.
A two-stage model is used to examine a landowner's decision to use riparian buffers. First, the farmer chooses whether to continue farming or to sell the land for development. If the farmer continues farming, then he or she must decide whether or not to plant a buffer. If the farmer plants a buffer, he or she must choose its type: trees or grass. Simulations of a representative farmer determine the parameters and parameter values that affect each decision. The farmer chooses to plant a buffer unless the net crop price is high or the land rental rate is low. The choice of buffer type is affected by crop price, farm size, relative incentive payments, relative cost share rates, and amount of deer damage.

Regional Growth Impacts on Agricultural Land Development: A Spatial Model for Three States AgEcon
Hailu, Yohannes G.; Brown, Cheryl.
In this study we attempt to understand the relationship between regional growth in population, employment, and per capita income, and farmland development in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. A spatial simultaneous equations model is estimated using county-level data. Results indicate that while county income growth and agricultural land value increases in neighboring counties increase the rate of farmland loss, growth in county agricultural land values, increases in agricultural land density in neighboring counties, and increases in agricultural income per farm reduce farmland losses. Farmland protection policies were not significant in reducing agricultural land development. This approach, focused on regional growth, provides insight into...

The Impact of Socioeconomic and Spatial Differences on Obesity in West Virginia AgEcon
Amarasinghe, Anura; D'Souza, Gerard E.; Brown, Cheryl; Borisova, Tatiana.
Obesity constitutes an important public policy issue since it causes external costs to society through increased healthcare costs borne by taxpayers. This study employed random and fixed effects estimations and spatial autoregressive approaches under a panel data structure to unravel possible socioeconomic and built environment factors contributing to obesity. Though there is no statistical evidence for time invariant fixed effects, empirical evidence shows that obesity is a spatially non-random event. Educational attainment that raises both human and social capital as well as changes in the built environment could play a vital role in controlling obesity.

THE ROLE OF SPATIAL AND DEMOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS IN DIRECT FARM MARKETING: AN ECONOMETRIC APPROACH AgEcon
Gandee, Jesse E.; Brown, Cheryl; D'Souza, Gerard E..
Direct farm marketing sales in the Northeastern region of the U.S. and more specifically in the state of West Virginia increased during the 1990s. To understand the factors that influence recent trends in direct farm marketing, this analysis uses a regression function to test the relationships between county direct farm marketing sales and county spatial and socio-economic characteristics. Data from West Virginia is used to analyze the relationship between the consumer, land characteristics, and farm sales. The results reveal that the model is relatively accurate and multiple consumer characteristics and land use variables significantly influence sales of farm goods marketed directly to consumers.

West Virginia Farm Direct Marketing: A County Level Analysis AgEcon
Brown, Cheryl; Gandee, Jesse E.; D'Souza, Gerard E..
To understand the factors that influence farm direct marketing, a linear regression model is estimated to test the relationships between county-level direct market sales and socioeconomic, agricultural production, and location characteristics for West Virginia. The results show that higher median housing value, increased population density, a younger population, a greater number of direct market farms, more diversity of fruit and vegetable production and closer proximity to Washington, D.C., increase direct market sales. The results have implications for other states with a large proportion of small and part-time farmers, many of whom are located in close proximity to metropolitan areas.

What Is Historic Integrity Worth to the General Public? Evidence from a Proposed Relocation of a West Virginia Agricultural Mill AgEcon
Maskey, Vishakha; Brown, Cheryl; Collins, Alan R.; Nassar, Hala F..
While historians believe that preserving a historic building in its original location is important to maintain its historic integrity, the general public’s opinion is unknown. Survey data were gathered from local residents regarding a proposed relocation of a historic mill in rural West Virginia. Only a minority of the sample population supported preserving the mill at its original location. Willingness to pay for preservation was estimated at $8.45 for a one-time donation for the sample and $2.29 after adjusting for non-respondents using characteristics of the local population.
