ACCEPTABILITY OF IRRADIATION TECHNOLOGY TO FOOD SERVICE PROVIDERS 31
Mulik, Kranti; Fox, John A.; Boland, Michael A..
Restaurant managers in Kansas were surveyed to investigate attitudes toward food irradiation and willingness to buy and serve irradiated hamburger patties. Results indicate that 54% of restaurants are willing to purchase irradiated ground beef. Median willingness-to-pay for irradiation for females was estimated at 6.25c/lb and for males at 3.94c/lb.

BOVINE SPONGIFORM ENCEPHALOPATHY (BSE): RISKS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR THE UNITED STATES 31
Fox, John A.; Peterson, Hikaru Hanawa.
Practioner's Abstract: Mad cow disease has caused two disruptions in European beef markets--first in the U.K. in 1996 following the announcement of a link to new variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob Disease in humans, and the second in late 2000 following the discovery of "homegrown" cases of the disease in Germany and Spain. In September 2001 the disease was discovered in Japan where it also resulted in an immediate and substantial reduction in beef demand. The disease has not been found in the U.S. but the current scope of detection efforts provides little assurance that it does not exist at a very low level. The U.S. has taken a number of precautionary measures to reduce both the risk of importing the disease and the risk of the disease spreading if it...

Choice Experiments to Assess Farmers' Willingness to Participate in a Water Quality Trading Market 31
Peterson, Jeffrey M.; Fox, John A.; Leatherman, John C.; Smith, Craig M..
Interest has grown in Water Quality Trading (WQT) as a means to achieve water quality goals, with more than 70 such programs now in operation in the United States. Substantial evidence exists that nonpoint sources can reduce nutrient loading at a much lower cost than point sources, implying the existence of gains from trade. Despite the potential gains, however, the most commonly noted feature of existing WQT markets is low trading volume, with many markets resulting in zero trades. This paper evaluates one explanation for the lack of participation from agricultural nonpoint sources. We test for and quantify the “intangible costs” that may deter farmers from trading even if the monetary benefits from doing so outweigh the observable out-of-pocket costs. We...

CONSUMER DEMAND FOR AND ATTITUDES TOWARD ALTERNATIVE BEEF LABELING STRATEGIES IN FRANCE, GERMANY, AND THE UK 31
Roosen, Jutta; Lusk, Jayson L.; Fox, John A..
A wide array of food safety scares and breakdowns have led to loss of consumer confidence in the quality and safety of beef products. To counteract such concerns, firms and regulators have the ability to utilize brands or labels to signal quality. Utilizing a mail survey in France, Germany, and the United Kingdom, we analyzed consumer preferences for alternative beef labeling strategies. Using an ordered probit model and a double bounded logit model, we estimate consumer preferences for alternative beef labeling programs. In general, results suggest that consumers have more confidence in government mandated labels as opposed to private brands. French and German consumers place a higher level of importance on brands and labels than do UK consumers....

CONSUMER DEMAND FOR MANDATORY LABELING OF BEEF FROM CATTLE ADMINISTERED GROWTH HORMONES OR FED GENETICALLY MODIFIED CORN 31
Lusk, Jayson L.; Fox, John A..
This study estimates the value of policies that would mandate labeling of beef from cattle produced with growth hormones or fed genetically modified corn. At no cost, 85 percent of resondents desired mandatory labeling of beef produced with growth hormones and 64 percent of respondents preferred mandatory labeling of beef fed genetically modified corn. Estimates suggest that consumers would be willing to pay 17.0 percent and 10.6 percent higher prices for beef on average to obtain information provided via mandatory labeling about whether the beef is from cattle produced with growth hormones or fed genetically modified corn, respectively.

CONSUMER VALUATION OF BEEF RIBEYE STEAK ATTRIBUTES 31
Lusk, Jayson L.; Fox, John A..
A choice experiment (conjoint analysis) was used to investigate consumer demand for several beef ribeye steak attributes. Respondents indicated that they would prefer a "“hormone free"” ribeye steak priced up to $6.68/lb. more than a “"non-hormone" free” ribeye steak. Tenderness was also identified as an important attribute in the consumer purchasing decision as a one-unit increase in the tenderness of a steak (on a scale of one to 10) was associated with a $1.13/lb. premium. Steak marbling and whether the animal was fed genetically modified corn were of less importance to consumers.

CONSUMER WILLINGNESS-TO-PAY FOR PORK PRODUCED UNDER AN INTEGRATED MEAT SAFETY SYSTEM 31
Boland, Michael A.; Fox, John A.; Mark, Darrell R..
The objective is to estimate consumer willingness-to-pay (WTP) for pork chops produced under an integrated program which is designed to reduce the incidence of Salmonella. A double-bounded model is estimated to determine Kansas and Indiana consumers WTP for these pork chops. The median WTP is $4.92 per pound.

CONSUMERS' VALUATION OF INSECTICIDE USE RESTRICTIONS: AN APPLICATION TO APPLES 31
Roosen, Jutta; Fox, John A.; Hennessy, David A.; Schreiber, Alan.
Economic assessments of pesticide regulations typically focus on producer impacts and generally ignore possible changes in product demand. These changes may be nonnegligible if real and/or perceived product attributes change. We measure consumers’' willingness to pay (WTP) for the elimination of one insecticide and also a whole group of insecticides in apple production using a multiple-round Vickrey auction. The data are analyzed using nonparametric statistical tests and a double-hurdle model. Our findings show that consumer perceptions of product attributes change if pesticides are removed from production, and this is reflected in WTP changes. WTP is shown to be income elastic.

COSTS OF WETLAND RESTRICTIONS TO KANSAS AGRICULTURAL PRODUCERS 31
Gelso, Brett R.; Fox, John A..
The purpose of this study was to identify the cost of permanent and seasonal wetlands to Kansas Agricultural producers. The analysis was based on survey data collected from Kansas Farm Management Association members. Regression analysis indicated that wetlands are costly to agricultural producers. Permanent wetlands were found to be slightly more costly than seasonal wetlands. Importantly, the results suggested dispersed wetlands are more costly to Kansas farms compared to contiguous wetlands. This study provides information that could be useful in determining farm policy. A subsidy to aggregate wetland acres was expected to reduce costs to producers, while also benefiting society from increased biodiversity.

DEMAND FOR BEEF FROM CATTLE ADMINISTERED GROWTH HORMONES OR FED GENETICALLY MODIFIED CORN: A COMPARISON OF CONSUMERS IN FRANCE, GERMANY, THE UNITED KINGDOM, AND THE UNITED STATES 31
Lusk, Jayson L.; Roosen, Jutta; Fox, John A..
This study compares consumer valuations of beef steaks from cattle produced without growth hormones or genetically modified corn in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In general, European consumers place a higher value on beef from cattle that have not been administered growth hormones and/or fed genetically modified corn than United States consumers. There is a larger divergence between the two cultures with regard to the issue of biotechnology and genetic engineering than with the issue of growth hormones. Results suggest that liberalizing trade policy for hormone-treated beef may be welfare reducing for the European Union.

Estimating the demand for risk reduction from foodborne pathogens through food irradiation 31
Hartl, Jochen; Fox, John A..
In this study the response of US consumers to irradiation in meat processing is examined. Despite scientific evidence of the effectiveness and safety of irradiation, meat processors and retailers have been slow to market irradiated beef products due to uncertainty about consumer acceptance. The objective of this study was therefore to examine the factors influencing consumer demand for irradiation using data from a contingent valuation (CV) survey with 819 households in eight midwestern US states. The analysis focused on the value of reduced risk from Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella in ground beef consumption. Respondents were on average willing to pay a price premium of 22 cents/lb. for safer ground beef. Willingness to Pay (WTP) amounts were...

European Preferences for Beef Steak Attributes 31
Tonsor, Glynn T.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Fox, John A.; Biere, Arlo W..
A choice experiment is used to evaluate how consumers in London, Frankfurt, and Paris value beef steaks with attributes such as: "hormone-free," "GM-free," farm-specific source verification, and domestic origin. The effect of various consumer characteristics on steak selection is also evaluated. Results suggest that European consumers are significantly heterogeneous in their preferences for beef steak attributes. French and German consumers have a higher willingness to pay to avoid genetically modified feed use than British consumers, while German and British consumers would pay more for growth hormone-free beef. French and German consumers are willing to pay for farm-specific source verification.

EXPERIMENTAL METHODS IN CONSUMER PREFERENCE STUDIES 31
Fox, John A.; Hayes, Dermot J.; Shogren, Jason F.; Kliebenstein, James B..
Controlled experimental auctions can be used to elicit preferences for food products. We describe results from two series of experiments in which subjects revealed their willingness-to-pay for safer food. In one series, the risk reduction technology was not specified; in the other, it was identified as food irradiation. The results provide some evidence on the acceptability of food irradiation as a risk reduction technology.

MEASURING CONSUMER BENEFITS OF FOOD SAFETY RISK REDUCTIONS 31
Buzby, Jean C.; Fox, John A.; Ready, Richard C.; Crutchfield, Stephen R..
Microbial pathogens and pesticide residues in food pose a financial burden to society which can be reduced by incurring costs to reduce these food safety risks. We explore three valuation techniques that place a monetary value on food safety risk reductions, and we present a case study for each: a contingent valuation survey on pesticide residues, an experimental auction market for a chicken sandwich with reduced risk of Salmonella, and a cost-of-illness analysis for seven foodborne pathogens. Estimates from these techniques can be used in cost/benefit analyses for policies that reduce food safety risks.

WHOLESALE DEMAND FOR USDA QUALITY GRADED BOXED BEEF AND EFFECTS OF SEASONALITY 31
Lusk, Jayson L.; Marsh, Thomas L.; Schroeder, Ted C.; Fox, John A..
This study estimates wholesale demand for pork, chicken, and quality differentiated beef. We estimate meat retailer own- and cross-price demand elasticities for USDA Choice and Select boxed beef. Results indicate that meat retailers have more elastic demand for lower quality graded beef. Retail beef price has a strong positive relationship with Choice and Select boxed beef demand, and a strong negative relationship with wholesale pork and chicken demand. Seasonal analysis reveals demand for both beef quality grades becomes highly price inelastic during the summer months. The two beef quality grades are substitutes during the winter; however, Select beef is not a substitute for Choice beef in the spring and summer.
