Accruals, Free Cash Flows, and EBITDA for Agribusiness Firms AgEcon
Trejo-Pech, Carlos Omar; Weldon, Richard N.; House, Lisa; Salas-Gutierrez, Tomas.
This study explores the relationships between the accrual and cash flow components of earnings for agribusiness. Three accrual models with their respective cash flows, free cash flows, and free cash flows to equity are analyzed. Results for the agribusiness industry are compared with results from previous studies of all firms. Earnings Before Interests, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA), a measure frequently recommended as a proxy for cash flow is tested using these models. Empirical results show that both the magnitude and the behavior of EBITDA differ from cash flows and should not be used as a proxy.

AGRICULTURAL, AGRIBUSINESS, AND INTERNATIONAL MARKETING COURSES IN UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULA: ISSUES AND IDEAS AgEcon
Wysocki, Allen F.; Fairchild, Gary F.; Weldon, Richard N.; Biere, Arlo W.; Fulton, Joan R.; McIntosh, Christopher S..
Agricultural marketing courses cover a broad spectrum of topics and issues. Undergraduate committees, program coordinators, and marketing-oriented faculty struggle with the appropriate number and content of marketing course offerings. Curricula issues are discussed from the perspectives of three agricultural economics departments. Size, expertise, interests, and pedagogic philosophy assist in determining the number, mix, and content of courses. Solving these problems includes modulization and increasing depth or breadth, to reflect the changing marketing system and student needs. Educators must continually look outward at the changing food system and inward to their marketing curriculum to assess needs and implement changes as they are warranted.

AN ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF LOW INVESTMENT SWINE PRODUCTION SYSTEMS AgEcon
Weldon, Richard N.; Eidman, Vernon R.; Jacobson, Larry D..
This publication summarizes an evaluation of smaller and lower investment swine production systems. The systems analyzed range from pasture operations with production during the warmer months to rather intense year-round use of remodeled buildings. In each case the system emphasizes use of facilities that can be constructed and remodeled by the farm operator. The report includes one section for each type of hog production: feeder pig production, farrow-to-finish operations and hog finishing.

CRITICAL ECONOMIC FACTORS FOR SUCCESS OF A BIOMASS CONVERSION PLANT FOR AGRICULTURAL RESIDUE, YARD RESIDUE AND WOOD WASTE IN FLORIDA AgEcon
Granja, Ivan R.; VanSickle, John J.; Ingram, Lonnie; Weldon, Richard N..
This model evaluates the potential success of a cellulosic ethanol plant in Florida. Critical Economic factors of the plant were simulated to assess the ability of this project. These critical factors include the feedstock to be used, the cost of the facility, transportation costs and the discount rate for the net present value (NPV). Results and observations are presented in this paper.

ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF TEMIK ON CITRUS IN THE INDIAN RIVER AREA IN SOUTHEASTERN FLORIDA AgEcon
Blakeley, Lindsey; Weldon, Richard N.; Fairchild, Gary F..
Temik [R](aldicarb) is a pesticide labeled for use on several citrus crops to control rust mite, whitefly, nematode and brown citrus aphid pests. Analysis of previous research experiments indicates that this pesticide is beneficial to both orange and grapefruit production and that both cost savings and higher yields can be experienced in many types of groves. Actual grove data shows that net returns for mature grapefruit that receive Temik [R] can be $500 per acre greater than net returns for identical acreage that uses other pest control options. Also, based on grove reset data it is shown that with an application of Temik [R] the resulting increased yields for three-year-old trees more than cover the additional cost of applying the Temik [R].

Financial Appraisal of the Banks for Cooperatives AgEcon
Weldon, Richard N.; Srinarni, Endah; Moss, Charles B.; VanSickle, John J..
This study examines the financial situation of the Farm Credit System Banks for Cooperatives using comparative analysis for the period 1978 through 1991. Profitability and leverage measures of the Banks for Cooperatives are compared with similar measures of large commercial banks. The Banks for Cooperatives were found to have performed as well as large commercial banks. Some differences can be explained as compatible with differences in the goals and objectives of a cooperative versus an investor-owned firm. Most differences can be attributed to the financial strength of the Banks for Cooperatives relative to the commercial banking industry.

FOOD SAFETY AND FRESH STRAWBERRY MARKETS AgEcon
Woods, Mollie; Thornsbury, Suzanne; Raper, Kellie Curry; Weldon, Richard N.; Wysocki, Allen F..
Consumer awareness of food safety issues is reshaping the retail food supply chain. For some retailers, public standards for food safety fail to provide the level of assurance demanded by their customers, so many are turning to private standards. Fresh strawberries have been implicated in food safety outbreaks resulting in clear decreases in short term demand. Shifts in production and consumption caused by the increased costs of adopting public or private food safety standards may reshape the fresh strawberry industry in the NAFTA region. Three scenarios of the adoption of food safety practices are analyzed using comparative statics and the outcomes of each scenario are discussed.

Practices Used by Dairy Farmers to Reduce Seasonal Production Variability AgEcon
Weldon, Richard N.; Kilmer, Richard L.; Washington, Andrew A..
The objective of this analysis was to identify the production practices used by farmers to change seasonal production. Production practices included milk production per cow, proportion of cows milking, number of first lactation animals entering the herd, number of cows leaving the herd, number of days to first breeding, and calves born. Farms that participated in a seasonal pricing plan during 1993, 1994, and 1995 decreased production practice seasonality in response to price premiums, which caused a decrease in production seasonality compared to nonparticipating farms. Participating farms showed a preference for adjusting entering first lactation animals and number of calves born, but did make adjustments in other practices as well.

Specialty crop producers' crop insurance decisions AgEcon
VanSickle, John J.; Weldon, Richard N.; Jung, Jione.
Virtually all the studies reviewed examined the crop insurance participation decision of midwestern producers of corn, soybeans, or other feed grains. Such program crops also have price or income support programs, which make crop producers less vulnerable to risk. Therefore, the role and implication of crop insurance for program crops may be different from those for non-program crops including specialty crops. Consequently, the results from the studies for program crops may not be applicable to specialty crop cases. The objective of this study is to analyze factors affecting specialty crop producers’ uses of crop insurance as a risk management tool.

Student Perceptions of Online Distance Education in Undergraduate Agricultural Economic Programs AgEcon
House, Lisa; Weldon, Richard N.; Wysocki, Allen F..
Undergraduate Food and Resource Economics majors and those with different majors were surveyed to determine the perceived advantages and disadvantages of distance and online education courses from a student perspective. Specific objectives included determining if students who have been exposed to more online courses are more likely to rate online education as positive or negative relative to the traditional classroom setting. In general, Food and Resource Economics majors tended to view distance and online education courses less favorably than did the others.

THE EXPECTED COST OF AN INCOME SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR PROCESSING ORANGES AgEcon
Weldon, Richard N.; VanSickle, John J..
The Florida citrus industry operates in a competitive global market. However, unlike program crops, producers in this industry do not benefit from direct income support under the new Farm Bill. There is concern about the impact of elimination of the orange juice tariff on the financial health of the Florida orange industry. The purpose of this paper is to examine the level of government expenditure that would be needed to provide income support to orange producers if the orange juice tariff were eliminated. For the span of the Bill direct payments to corn are estimated to total $25.1 billion. By comparison the direct expenditures incurred for an income support program for oranges would be substantially less. In the early years with the tariff in place the...
