Adoption and Profitability of Breeding Technologies on United States Dairy Farms AgEcon
Khanal, Aditya R.; Gillespie, Jeffrey M..
Adoption decisions and profitability of advanced breeding technologies are analyzed for U.S. dairy farms. The bivariate probit with selection model is used. Results show that specialized, younger, more educated farmers with longer planning horizons are more likely to adopt the technologies, with positive impacts on profitability and negative influences on cost of production.

Adoption of Technology, Management Practices, and Production Systems by U.S. Beef Cow-Calf Producers AgEcon
Pruitt, J. Ross; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Nehring, Richard F.; Qushim, Berdikul.
Using USDA’s Agricultural Resource Management Survey data, factors leading to the adoption of technology, management practices, and production systems by U.S. beef cow-calf producers are analyzed. Binary logit regression models are used to determine impacts of vertical integration; region of the U.S.; farm size, diversification, and tenure; and demographics on adoption decisions. Significant differences were found in adoption rates by region of the U.S., degree of vertical integration, and size of operation, suggesting the presence of economies of size and vertical economies of scope. Results also indicate high degrees of complementarity among technologies, management practices, and production systems.

Adoption of Technology, Management Practices, and Production Systems in U.S. Milk Production AgEcon
Khanal, Aditya R.; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; MacDonald, James M..
We examine U.S. dairy farmer adopter characteristics and adoption rates of eleven technologies. Excepting grazing, technologies were generally adopted complementarily. Four were used on higher percentages of farms in 2005 than 2000. The interaction of farm size with adoption suggests greater percentages of milk being produced under each, excepting grazing.

An Evaluation of U.S. Hog Producer Preferences Toward Autonomy AgEcon
Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Davis, Christopher G.; Rahelizatovo, Noro C..
Hog farmers’ preferences for autonomy are assessed through the use of eight questions dealing with their preferences for general decision making and with respect to specific management actions. Farmers generally preferred to make a higher percentage of the decisions about their operations, especially older producers and those who operated farrowing units. Farmers who placed lower values on autonomy finished hogs, were nearing retirement, valued social relationships with other farmers more highly, had higher off-farm income, or were larger farmers.

Analysis of Cardinal and Ordinal Assumptions in Conjoint Analysis AgEcon
Harrison, R. Wes; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Fields, Deacue.
Of twenty-three agricultural economics conjoint analyses conducted between 1990 and 2001, seventeen used interval-rating scales, with estimation procedures varying widely. This study tests cardinality assumptions in conjoint analysis when interval-rating scales are used, and tests whether the ordered probit or two-limit tobit model is the most valid. Results indicate that cardinality assumptions are invalid, but estimates of the underlying utility scale for the two models do not differ. Thus, while the ordered probit model is theoretically more appealing, the two-limit tobit model may be more useful in practice, especially in cases with limited degrees of freedom, such as with individual-level conjoint models.

Awareness of and Application to the Environmental Quality Incentives Program By Cow–Calf Producers AgEcon
Obubuafo, Joyce; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Paudel, Krishna P.; Kim, Seon-Ae.
This study uses a bivariate probit model with partial observability to examine Louisiana beef producers’ awareness of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and how awareness translates to application to the program. Results indicate that awareness of and application to the EQIP depend on portion of income derived from off-farm sources, extent of previous best management practice adoption at one’s own expense, household income, farmed land that is highly erodible, contact with Natural Resource Conservation Service and extension service personnel, and producer age.

Awareness of EQIP and Subsequent Adoption of BMPs by Cattle Farmers AgEcon
Obubuafo, Joyce; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Kim, Seon-Ae; Paudel, Krishna P..
In summer, 2003, roughly half of Louisiana cattle producers had never heard of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. Those who had heard of it and had applied for funds were more diversified, larger, and had contact with Natural Resources and Conservation Service personnel within the past year.

Beef Producer Choice in Cattle Marketing AgEcon
Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Basarir, Aydin; Schupp, Alvin R..
In addition to the conventional auction method of cattle marketing, some alternative marketing arrangements include sale by private treaty, video auction, retained ownership, and use of strategic alliances. This study finds that 91% of Louisiana producers use conventional auctions, while 39% use other types of marketing arrangements. The most heavily used alternative marketing arrangement is private treaty, at 26%. Those producers using alternative marketing arrangements tend to be larger, have heavier weaning weights, have more diverse farming operations, be younger, have greater contact with their county extension agents, and depend less on income from off-farm sources.

Beef Producer Preferences and Purchase Decisions for Livestock Price Insurance AgEcon
Fields, Deacue; Gillespie, Jeffrey M..
Personal interviews were conducted with beef cattle producers in Louisiana to determine their preferences and purchase decisions for livestock price insurance. Conjoint analysis was utilized to determine the importance of selected attributes of insurance policies for these producers. The characteristics of producers who prefer given attributes were also identified. Producers rated products given four economic situations to evaluate. A two-limit tobit model was used to estimate the part worth utility values for each attribute. Univariate probit models were estimated to evaluate the influence of producer characteristics on purchase decisions.

Case Studies of Strategic Alliances in Southeastern Beef Production AgEcon
Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Bu, Angel; Boucher, Robert W..
Three calf marketing and three commercial beef carcass strategic alliances were examined via case study to determine alliance structure and whether each addressed risk, transaction costs, capital availability, and other concerns. The alliances reduced transaction costs and increased information flow among segments, but did not specifically address risk.

Case Studies of Strategic Alliances in U.S. Beef Production AgEcon
Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Bu, Angel; Boucher, Robert W.; Choi, Won-Jun.
Calf marketing, commercial beef carcass, and natural/implant-free beef strategic alliances were examined via case study to determine alliance structure and whether each addressed risk, transaction costs, capital availability, and other concerns. All alliances were structured differently through vertical or horizontal coordination, and each had been established within the past 12 years. Alliance administrators reported that an advantage to cow-calf producers was higher cattle prices received relative to producers outside the alliances. The alliances reduced transaction costs and increased information flow among segments. Alliances did not specifically address risk or increased access to capital for technology adoption or expansion purposes.

CONSUMER ATTITUDES TOWARD POTENTIAL COUNTRY-OF-ORIGIN LABELING OF FRESH OR FROZEN BEEF AgEcon
Schupp, Alvin R.; Gillespie, Jeffrey M..
A sample of Louisiana households was surveyed by mail to estimate their degree of support for compulsory country-of-origin labeling of fresh or frozen beef in grocery stores and restaurants. This potential requirement for grocery stores and restaurants was supported by 93 and 88 percent of respondents, respectively. Binomial probit analysis identified the socioeconomic characteristics of consumers with respect to their decision on the labeling of fresh or frozen beef in grocery stores and restaurants. Important variables for both types of outlets were “"prefer domestic over imported durable goods,"” “"consider domestic beef safer than imported beef,"” and “"male.”"

CONSUMER AWARENESS AND USE OF NUTRITION LABELS ON PACKAGED FRESH MEATS: A PILOT STUDY AgEcon
Schupp, Alvin R.; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Reed, Debra.
The Nutritional Labeling and Education Act of 1990 called for the voluntary nutrition labeling of packaged fresh meats in retail stores. The stores had until mid-1994 to meet the Act's provisions. Availability and use of these labels in Louisiana retail stores were examined by a 1997 survey of households. One-half of the responding households perceived that these nutrition labels were in use in stores, and when available, they were used by most respondents. The primary reasons for nonuse include sufficient prior knowledge of nutrient content, insufficient shopping time to check labels, and lack of interest in nutrient content. Family income, household head retired, and interest in preparing healthy meals in the home were statistically significant...

CONSUMER CHOICE AMONG ALTERNATIVE RED MEATS AgEcon
Schupp, Alvin R.; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Reed, Debra.
A multinomial logit model was estimated and used to analyze consumer choice between the best retail meat cut from four species of alternative livestock or "none of these" (all with equal retail prices). The data source, a 1997 survey of Louisiana households, included buffalo, emu, ostrich, and venison. The following were important variables in the respondents' selection among species of alternative livestock: sex, education and race of the respondent; previous consumption of meat from exotic animals; and respondent identification of venison as an exotic meat. The respondents also indicated some resistance to consuming meat from animals that they considered to be exotic. These results infer that producers and sellers of meat from exotic animals will have to...

CONSUMER KNOWLEDGE OF SELECTED NUTRIENT CONTENT OF NINE FRESH MEAT CUTS AgEcon
Reed, Debra; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Downer, Robert; Schupp, Alvin R..
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, and the medical profession, among others, have attempted to broaden consumers' knowledge of the nutritive content of foods. Retailers provide information by supplying point-of-purchase nutrition information and/or nutrition labels on fresh meats. The availability of nutrition information on packaged fresh meats is relatively new. A survey of Louisiana households provided estimates of their knowledge of the fat, cholesterol, and protein content of selected combinations of fresh beef, pork, chicken, and turkey meats. Permutation analysis and tabular analyses were used to assess households' nutrition knowledge of the selected fresh meats.

Consumer-Preferred Attributes of a Fresh Ground Beef and Turkey Product: A Conjoint Analysis AgEcon
Schupp, Alvin R.; Gillespie, Jeffrey M.; Prinyawiwatkul, Witoon; O'Neil, Carol E..
A random sample of 3,400 Louisiana households was surveyed by mail to determine their ratings for a number of product profiles involving a combined fresh ground beef and turkey product. The attributes and levels of the new product included form (fresh, frozen), identity of the packager (retailer, processor), percentage of beef in product (50,70,90), and price of the combined product as a percentage of ground beef (80,90,100). Based on 2,781 observations, the order of importance of the attributes were, in order of declining importance, content, form, price, and packager. Consumer utility was highly sensitive to the content of beef, with a higher content being preferred.
