RESUMEN: El nivel de cuota láctea por explotación y la transferencia de cuota entre las distintas explotaciones juegan un papel principal en la reestructuración del sector productor de leche en España. En este trabajo se estiman el valor de una unidad de cuota, de su valor de capitalización en el horizonte del año 2006 y la concreción de algunos determinantes de dicho valor. El estudio se realiza utilizando los datos de 32 explotaciones de leche gallegas para el periodo 19901999, y como resultado del mismo se deducen conclusiones de interés en cuanto al funcionamiento del mercado de la cuota y a la política de gestión de las mismas. PALABRAS CLAVE: Producción de leche, función de costes, valor de la cuota SUMMARY: The level of milk quota for farm and the...

Alves, Eliseu Roberto de Andrade. 
The article deals with the cost function at a mathematical level that only requires knowledge of differentials, but except for that, it keeps rigor at a high level. It only states theorems that require long proofs. The article justifies the existence of the cost function, points out its properties, and shows how it relates with the production function in the sense that one is the dual to the other. The article discusses partial and scale elasticities, both in the context of production and cost functions. Whenever profit is maximized, one is the reciprocal of the other. The cost function has not a defined form in the sense that it can be deduced from the axioms of production theory. But the articles points out the plausibility of the form that resembles an...

Moschini, GianCarlo. 
Cost function estimation under production uncertainty is problematic because the relevant cost is conditional on unobservable expected output. If input demand functions are also stochastic, then a nonlinear errorsinvariables model is obtained and standard estimation procedures typically fail to attain consistency. But by exploiting the full implications of the expected profit maximization hypothesis that gives rise to ex ante cost functions, it is shown that the errorsinvariables problem can be effectively removed, and consistent estimation of the parameters of interest can be achieved. A Monte Carlo experiment illustrates the advantages of the proposed procedure as well as the pitfalls of other existing estimators.

Over 30 million lunches and 9.8 million breakfasts are served every day to children in participating American schools through the USDA National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. It is challenging for participating local school food authorities (SFAs) to serve appealing, healthful meals while covering food, labor, and other operating costs with USDA reimbursements. But it may be more difficult for some SFAs than others due to cost differences across locations. Analysis of data from a large national sample reveals that after controlling for differences in SFA characteristics, sharp differences in costs remained among rural, urban, and suburban SFAs and across regions. The highest costs occurred in MidAtlantic, suburban SFAs and the lowest cost...

Rosas, Francisco; Hayes, Dermot J.. 
This paper develops a method to jointly estimate crop yield elasticities and area elasticities with respect to output prices based on a theoretically consistent model. The model uses a duality theory approach for the multioutput and multiinput firm, and introduces uncertainty in the level of target output which conditions the cost minimization problem, in the output prices and in the conditional input demand functions. The underlying production technology is conditioned on fixed inputs, both allocatable and nonallocatable. Up to our knowledge, there have been no theoretical developments of this type of models for multioutput technologies. Our approach is also novel because no previous model of this type has introduced the effects of allocatable fixed...
