A Nonparametric Analysis of Cost Minimization and Profit Maximization Behavior for a Sample of Kansas Farms AgEcon
Moghnieh, Ghassan A.; Featherstone, Allen M.; Goodwin, Barry K..
This study investigates nonparametrically the optimizing behavior of a sample of 289 Kansas farms under profit-maximizing and cost-minimizing hypotheses. The results do not support strict adherence to either optimization hypothesis. However, evidence against cost-minimizing behavior seems to be far less substantial than that against profit-maximizing behavior.

A NONPARAMETRIC ANALYSIS OF EFFICIENCY FOR A SAMPLE OF KANSAS BEEF COW FARMS AgEcon
Featherstone, Allen M.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Ismet, Mohammad.
Competitive pressures in the cow-calf sector increased in 1995 because of a decline of 27% in calf prices. Technical, allocative, and scale efficiency measures were used to examine the competitiveness of a sample of Kansas beef cow farms. On average, the farms were 78% technically efficient, 81% allocatively efficient, and 95% scale efficient. Enterprise profitability was correlated positively with the efficiency measures. Inefficiency was related to herd size and degree of specialization. Producers should focus on using capital, feed, and labor more efficiently rather that increasing their size. Increased concentration of the cow-calf sector will not result in large cost savings given the current technology.

A NONPARAMETRIC EFFICIENCY ANALYSIS FOR A SAMPLE OF KANSAS SWINE OPERATIONS AgEcon
Rowland, William W.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Schurle, Bryan W.; Featherstone, Allen M..
This study evaluates the economic competitiveness of a sample of Kansas farrow-to-finish operations by estimating relative firm efficiency using nonparametric mathematical programming techniques. Measures of technical, allocative, scale, economic, and overall efficiency are then related to farm characteristics to identify sources of efficiency. Results indicate that overall efficient farms produce a high quantity of pork per litter, produce a portion of their own feed grains, generate a large portion of their income from swine and other livestock enterprises, and have a lower debt-to-asset ratio.

A Nonparametric Efficiency Analysis of Bean Producers from North and South Kivu AgEcon
Ross, Kara L.; Dalton, Timothy J.; Featherstone, Allen M..
The purpose of this research is to determine how technically efficient small-scale producers are in two provinces (North and South Kivu) in the Democratic of Republic (DR) of Congo at producing two different varieties of beans: bush and climbing beans. In addition to calculating the efficiency scores, this research attempts to identify what producer and field characteristics affect these scores. We hypothesize that bean producers will be more productive than producers in South Kivu and that climbing bean producers will be more productive than bush bean producers. Technical efficiency is estimated using a nonparametric approach. A tobit model is used to examine the effect of producer and field characteristic on the efficiency score. On average, farms...

ADJUSTING THE CAPM FOR THRESHOLD EFFECTS: AN APPLICATION TO FOOD AND AGRIBUSINESS STOCKS AgEcon
Wilson, Christine A.; Featherstone, Allen M..
The dynamics in stock returns and the market return for 21 food and agribusiness firms are estimated in a threshold switching-regression framework. Threshold adjustment levels and capital asset pricing model risk parameters are estimated and tested. Results indicate risk parameters differ for alternative regimes and are not constant over time. Accounting for periods of temporary disequilibrium leads to notably more stable risk measurement estimates.

AGRICULTURE'S SHIFTING POLITICAL POWER BASE AgEcon
Cole, Christine A.; Featherstone, Allen M..
This study examines the change over time in agricultural congressional market power and production concentration using the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index and concentration ratios. Results indicate that the number of congressional districts representing the production of several crops has declined substantially and that greater concentration within crop and livestock variables has occurred.

ALLOCATION OF FARM FINANCIAL STRESS AMONG INCOME, LEVERAGE, AND INTEREST RATE COMPONENETS: A KANSAS EXAMPLE AgEcon
Featherstone, Allen M.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Burton, Robert O., Jr..
Suggested methods to reduce farm financial stress have included interest rate buy-downs and debt forgiveness. This study develops a method to estimate the proportion of individual farm financial stress attributable to an income problem, a leverage problem, and an interest rate problem. Of the Kansas Farm Management Association farms with a financial problem, 30 percent of the total financial problem is caused by an interest rate problem, 28 percent by a leverage problem, and 42 percent by an income problem. A reduction of leverage or interest rate to the level attained by the average nonstressed farms would make 31 percent and 32 percent of the stressed farms profitable, respectively. Therefore, in the short run, an interest rate buy-down or a debt...

AN EXAMINATION OF THE EMPIRICAL PROPERTIES OF DUALITY BETWEEN THE RESTRICTED PROFIT, UNRESTRICTED PROFIT, AND PRODUCTION FUNCTIONS AgEcon
Lusk, Jayson L.; Abdulkadri, Abdullahi O.; Featherstone, Allen M..
This research examines the empirical properties of duality theory. A comparison of the Hessian matrices calculated from the normalized unrestricted and restricted profit, and production functions indicate that duality is highly sensitive to measurement error and relative price variability. Keywords: duality, restricted and unrestricted profit functions

Bayesian Inferences on Fourier Flexible Functional Form in Agricultural Production AgEcon
Featherstone, Allen M.; Cader, Hanas A..
Flexible functional forms are used to examine the characteristics of production technologies. The Fourier functional form is capable of approximating any function globally, with the specified expansion. Unfortunately the exact form of the expansion is not known. The regularity conditions are likely to be violated without the exact form of expansion. In this paper we use a Bayesian approach to impose regularity conditions locally on a Fourier flexible functional from using agricultural production data. Monotonicity, concavity, convexity and elasticities are compared.

CHARACTERISTICS OF MASTER'S PROGRAMS IN AGRIBUSINESS MANAGEMENT AgEcon
Boland, Michael A.; Featherstone, Allen M.; Chapman, Sandra J..
This study describes and compares agribusiness master’s programs in North America. These programs include the master of business administration (MBA) and master in (or “of”) agribusiness (MAB) degrees. Accredited MBA programs with an agribusiness emphasis are required to have a clear required core of courses in finance, management, marketing management, and human behavior. Additional required courses in policy, agricultural marketing, production or managerial economics, and quantitative methods are also frequently required. MAB programs have more diversity regarding the four core subjects with a greater percentage of the courses taught within departments of agricultural economics. Evaluation of agribusiness master’s programs in agricultural economics...

CLEARANCE SALES IN THE FARMLAND MARKET? AgEcon
Featherstone, Allen M.; Schurle, Bryan W.; Duncan, Steven S.; Postier, Kevin D..
The ultimate loss financial institutions bear for foreclosed loans is determined by their success in liquidating their acquired property portfolios. This study examines the price received for land sold by private individuals and financial institutions from 1977 through 1990. After adjusting for quality differences, financial institutions received on average 9.2% less than private individuals. Further analysis reveals that commercial banks received a discount of 5.8%, the Farm Credit System (FCS) a 9.2% discount, and Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) a 14.7% discount. For this sample of 13,375 Kansas sales, it is estimated that the sum of the transfers from financial institutions to land buyers amounted to $9.2 million.

Credit Quality of Kansas Farms AgEcon
Featherstone, Allen M.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Haverkamp, Kent.
The objective of this paper is to examine credit migration of individual Kansas farms from 1980-2003. Individual farm data collected from the Kansas Farm Management Data Bank are employed. From 1980 to 2003 these farms had an average credit rating equivalent to a Standard and Poor's B classification, which represents a vulnerable to adequate borrower. Farms in consecutive periods showed the largest tendency to remain in the same ratings category, with smaller tendencies to increase or decrease in credit quality. When movement did take place, there was a high likelihood of only a one category movement.
