Cooperative and Investor-Oriented Firm Efficiency: A Multiproduct Analysis AgEcon
Akridge, Jay T.; Hertel, Thomas W..
A multiproduct variable cost function was used to compare the efficiency of Midwestern cooperative and investor-oriented grain and farm supply firms. Results suggest that cooperatives are no less efficient in a variable cost sense than their investor-oriented counterparts. Concerning fixed input-variable cost elasticities, investor-oriented firms may be more effective in their use of plant and equipment, but cooperatives make more efficient use of other fixed inputs.

AGRIBUSINESS AND EXTENSION: CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS TO SERVE A RAPIDLY CHANGING CLIENTELE AgEcon
Akridge, Jay T..
The market for agribusiness extension activities and programming is diverse, intensely competitive, and national or international in scope. It is a market that agricultural economists cannot serve alone. Despite these complexities, a strong agribusiness extension effort is critical to the success of agribusiness research and teaching programs. Agribusiness extension opportunities include extending traditional agricultural economics research, small business management programs, economic/technical education programs, and management education. Keys for conducting successful agribusiness extension programs include understanding client needs, locating and employing the best instructional talent available, and flawless execution of the activity. Stimulating...

ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE SUPPLY CHAINS FOR SOYBEAN PEROXIDASE AgEcon
Lentz, T. Daniel; Akridge, Jay T..
Soybean peroxidase is an enzyme derived from soybean hulls. Peroxidase has much commercial potential as an ingredient in the manufacturer of polymers and specialty chemicals, as a dough conditioner, and as a component in medical test kits. Commodity soybean cultivars contain various amounts of active peroxidase enzyme. This study evaluates alternative supply chain arrangements for moving soybean hulls containing peroxidase from producer to processor. Results suggest at current peroxidase levels in soybeans, supply chain arrangements involving soybean segregation offer cost advantages over the standard commodity supply chain. In addition, a supply chain involving high peroxidase cultivars may offer enough cost savings over the commodity supply chain to...

PERFORMANCE OF ALTERNATIVE COMPONENT PRICING SYSTEMS FOR PORK AgEcon
Brorsen, B. Wade; Akridge, Jay T.; Boland, Michael A.; Mauney, Sean; Forrest, John C..
One method of implementing value-based marketing is a component pricing system. This research develops and evaluates alternative component pricing systems for pork. Two electronic technologies for estimating carcass components (optical probe and electromagnetic scanner) were evaluated on two sets of data representing different populations. Model accuracy increased as additional components were added.

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT: A CASE STUDY OF ISSUES FOR BIOAG AgEcon
Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T..
Supply chain management has become an increasingly important topic to agribusiness managers during the past five years. Drivers of this trend include buyers seeking higher levels of customer service and efforts by firms to control costs, especially inventory. This case introduces the reader to supply chain management. It would work well either as part of a capstone course, in a special topics course, or in an executive education course. The case explores some of the issues and dilemmas associated with supply chain management efforts at BioAg, a small Midwestern firm that manufacturers agricultural chemicals that are environmentally sensitive.

SEGMENTING THE COMMERCIAL PRODUCER MARKET FOR AGRICULTURAL INPUTS AgEcon
Gloy, Brent A.; Akridge, Jay T..
A cluster analysis procedure was used to develop a market segmentation of U.S. crop and livestock farms with annual sales in excess of $100,000. The results indicate that four distinct segments exist: convenience buyers, balance buyers, price buyers, and performance buyers. Differences in preferences across these segments have important implications for the marketing strategies of agricultural input suppliers.

SEGMENTING THE COMMERCIAL PRODUCER MARKETPLACE FOR AGRICULTURAL INPUTS AgEcon
Gloy, Brent A.; Akridge, Jay T..
A cluster analysis procedure was used to develop a market segmentation of U.S. crop and livestock farms with annual sales in excess of $100,000. The segments were developed based on the importance of six factors that producers evaluate when selecting input suppliers. The results indicate that four distinct segments exist: Convenience buyers, Balance buyers, Price buyers, and Performance buyers. Differences in preferences across these segments have important implications for the marketing strategies of agricultural input suppliers.

THE USEFULNESS AND INFLUENCE OF INFORMATION SOURCES ON COMMERCIAL FARMS AgEcon
Gloy, Brent A.; Akridge, Jay T.; Whipker, Linda D..
The usefulness of several information sources is examined for U.S. farms with sales in excess of $100,000. The results indicate that crop/livestock-specific magazines and general farm magazines are the most useful information sources. Analyses indicate that the types and number of different commodities that the farm produced, as well as Internet use, are the most consistent predictors of attitudes toward various information sources. However, characteristics that explain attitudes toward different information sources vary substantially across the information sources.

ADOPTION OF E-COMMERCE STRATEGIES FOR AGRIBUSINESS FIRMS AgEcon
Henderson, Jason R.; Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T..
This paper analyzes the factors guiding Internet and e-commerce implementation by agribusiness firms. The relationship between Internet/e-commerce strategies and manager perceptions on the barriers and factors to e-commerce adoption are analyzed in a supply-chain management framework. Using factor analysis and an ordered Probit model, results indicate that the implementation of Internet/e-commerce strategies is more likely to be adopted in larger firms with a global scope. Also, manager perceptions regarding supply-chain functions influencing transaction costs are more strongly associated with Internet/e-commerce adoption than other functions influencing production costs.

COMPUTER AND INTERNET ADOPTION ON LARGE U.S. FARMS AgEcon
Gloy, Brent A.; Akridge, Jay T..
The adoption of the personal computer and the Internet is studied within a sample of large U.S. farms. Factors such as age and education influence the adoption of both technologies. Likewise, strong relationships exist between the adoption of each technology and the sophistication of farm management and the complexity of the farm business. After controlling for computer adoption, the results suggest there remain several factors limiting Internet adoption. It appears that producers are unsure as to how the Internet can best be used to create value in their farm businesses.

E-Business and Distribution Channel Strategies in Agribusiness Industries AgEcon
Henderson, Jason R.; Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T.; Boehlje, Michael.
The explosion of e-business activity presents many challenges to manufacturers, distributors, and dealers as they select a distribution channel for the delivery of products, services, and information. The expected growth in Internet sales by agribusiness firms is analyzed to provide insight into the selection of an e-business distribution channel. Agribusiness firm managers were surveyed regarding the application and perceived impacts of e-business activity on their firm's operations. Firm characteristics and manager perceptions regarding the impact of e-business activity were analyzed descriptively and in regression analysis to understand the drivers of expected Internet sales growth. Expected Internet sales growth was found to vary by the firm's position...

PREPARING FOR SUCCESS IN THE AGRIBUSINESS MARKET PLACE AgEcon
Boehlje, Michael; Akridge, Jay T.; Kalaitzandonakes, Nicholas G..
With the dramatic changes occurring in the agricultural industries, it is critical to develop and maintain competencies that will enhance one's competitive position in this rapidly evolving market. The skills or capacities required to be successful are dynamic capabilities which embrace new ideas, change, innovation, analysis, integration, and teamwork-capabilities which may not be part of the experience base in the more traditional agriculture of the past.

CAPTURING VALUE IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN: THE CASE OF HIGH OLEIC ACID SOYBEANS AgEcon
Darroch, Mark A.G.; Akridge, Jay T.; Boehlje, Michael.
The oil produced from high oleic acid soybeans (HOS) offers benefits to both consumers and food manufacturers. It is lower in saturated fat and more heat-stable than commodity-grade soybean oil. Optimum Quality Grains L.L.C. is working with seed distributors, elevators, and crushers across the Midwestern U.S. to develop a new supply chain which keeps the HOS and the resulting oil separate (identity preserved (IP)) from commodity-grade soybean oil. This case illustrates the challenges and key issues facing three players - an agricultural inputs dealer, a grain elevator, and a soybean crusher - that must decide whether to join the new supply chain as the HOS research commercialization. The case can be used to create a discussion about how each player can...

STRATEGIC POSITIONING IN AGRIBUSINESS: ANALYSIS AND OPTIONS AgEcon
Gray, Allan W.; Boehlje, Michael; Akridge, Jay T..
The planning process presented in the paper outlines several methods of analysis that farm business managers can use to choose among three business position options. The five forces model is an effective tool for scanning the external business environment and assessing a business's internal resources and capabilities. The value plate will assist managers in identifying the activities upon which a business may build a competitive advantage. Once these are assesses, managers must select a strategic position from three options: operational excellence/cost leadership, product or service innovation, and customer intimacy.

Adoption of Internet Strategies by Agribusiness Firms AgEcon
Henderson, Jason R.; Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T.; Carerre, Antonio.
This paper explores the factors guiding Internet adoption by agribusiness firms. The relationship between Internet strategies and manager perceptions on the barriers to and catalysts for Internet adoption are analyzed in a supply-chain management framework. Using factor analysis and an ordered Probit model, results indicate that Internet strategies are more likely to be adopted in larger firms with a global scope. Also, manager perceptions regarding the impact of Internet adoption on transaction costs are just as likely to influence adoption as the perceived impacts on more traditional production costs.

Assessing Opportunities, Challenges, and the Future Role of the U.S. Crop Input Dealer AgEcon
Whipker, Linda D.; Akridge, Jay T.; Joshua, James D..
Distribution channels for crop production chemicals, fertilizers and seed are involved in a significant transition. Though the two endpoints of the channel remain the manufacturer and grower, many more options are evolving for transferring products, services, and information through the channel. Traditionally, the retail dealer was the pivot point in moving products, services, and information through the channel but as changes have occurred in the industry, and with technology, that role is evolving. Some of the factors driving change in the distribution channel for crop inputs include: • Competition, as new intermediaries enter the marketplace (consultants, brokers, wholesalers, large growers); • Consolidation, at all levels of the distribution...

2006 PRECISION AGRICULTURAL SERVICES DEALERSHIP SURVEY RESULTS AgEcon
Whipker, Linda D.; Akridge, Jay T..
Precision technologies are now well-integrated into the agricultural industry - both at the farm level and at the crop input dealer level. No longer are crop input dealers only using the technologies to bring new services to their customers, they are also utilizing the technology in their own businesses to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their business operations. In early 2006, Crop Life magazine and Purdue University's Center for Food and Agricultural Business conducted a survey for the 11th consecutive year to assess the adoption of precision agriculture practices in the U.S. from the perspective of the retail crop input dealer. The questionnaire was sent to 2500 retail crop input dealerships across the U.S. A total of 368 questionnaires...
