A MODEL OF ENTRY-EXIT DECISIONS AND CAPACITY CHOICE UNDER DEMAND UNCERTAINTY AgEcon
Isik, Murat; Coble, Keith H.; Hudson, Darren; House, Lisa.
Many investment decisions of agribusiness firms such as when to invest in an emerging market or whether to expand the capacity of the firm involve irreversible investment and uncertainty about demand, cost or competition. This paper uses an option-value model to examine the factors affecting an agribusiness firm's decision whether and how much to invest in an emerging market under demand uncertainty. Demand uncertainty and irreversibility of investment make investment less desirable than the net present value (NPV) rule indicates. The inactive firm is more reluctant to enter the market when it takes into account demand uncertainty because it preserves the opportunity of making a better investment later. The active firm is more reluctant to abandon the...

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.

An Evaluation of Consumer Preferences Regarding Goat Meat in the South AgEcon
Knight, Erika P.; House, Lisa; Nelson, Mack C.; Degner, Robert L..
The data obtained from a telephone survey that targeted residents in eleven Southern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas) were used to identify factors that influence goat-meat consumption by Southern consumers. The study also identifies marketing strategies that may encourage the consumption of goat-meat. This information can be used by goat-meat industry officials to better understand who their consumers are and to further expand their markets. The results from an ordered probit analysis indicated various demographic factors and consumption of other meats influenced goat-meat consumption preferences. For example, the probability of consuming goat meat...

ANALYSIS OF FACTORS INFLUENCING THE FREQUENCY OF CATFISH CONSUMPTION IN THE UNITED STATES AgEcon
Drammeh, Lamin; House, Lisa; Sureshwaran, Suresh; Selassie, Haile.
Consumption of seafood, including catfish, has become an important part of the diet for consumers in the United States. Per capita consumption of catfish increased from 0.41 pounds in 1985 to 0.90 pounds in 2001. The goal of this study is to investigate factors that influence the decisions to consume and frequency of consumption of catfish. One finding was the main emphasis of the Catfish Institute to market catfish as "farm-raised”" and to increase preparation knowledge through distribution of recipes should address factors likely to increase consumption.

Appellation of Origin Status and Economic Development: A Case Study of the Mezcal Industry AgEcon
Trejo-Pech, Carlos Omar; Lopez-Reyna, Carmen; House, Lisa; Messina, William A., Jr..
Mezcal is an alcoholic beverage produced only in selected regions of Mexico under appellation of origin status from the Word Intellectual Property Organization. While it has been produced in Mexico for many centuries, mezcal’s appellation of origin was only granted in 1995. Therefore efforts to produce and market it as a premium product have a relatively short history. This case study examines developments in the production and marketing of this unique product, and the activities of the marketing cooperative El Tecuán in Guerrero State in this process.

Are Fruit Juice Categories Separable? AgEcon
Knight, Erika P.; House, Lisa; Lee, Jonq-Ying; Spreen, Thomas H..
Supermarket shelves are saturated with numerous varieties and brands of juice beverages. This high level of assortment has dramatically changed beverage consumption patterns and trends throughout the United States. In fact, during 2004-2005, energy and sport drinks experienced significant increases in sales, 65.9% and 20.6 %, respectively. During the same period of time, refrigerated juice sales increased a mere 2.2%, shelved non-fruit drinks decreased 0.9%, bottled juices and cocktails both decreased 1.5 % and frozen juice decreased by 12.8% (Food Industry Review 2006). The beverage industry has undergone many transformations, but consumer theory states that a shift in demand for one good has to be compensated by a shift in the opposite directions in the...

Consumer WTP for Blueberry Attributes: A Hierarchical Bayesian Approach in the WTP Space AgEcon
Shi, Lijia; House, Lisa; Gao, Zhifeng.
A stated preference experiment is conducted to elicit consumer WTPs for various blueberry attributes. The mixed logit model is employed to account for consumer heterogeneity. The model is set up in the WTP space where the distributions of WTPs are directly specified. Considering the high diversity of consumer perception and the remarkable benefits from differential marketing, we apply the hierarchical Bayesian approach and the discussion is based on the individual level WTP estimates. The results show that “local produced” attribute is preferred over simply “produced in the U.S.” by most respondents. By contrast, less than 50% of the respondents are willing to pay premium for organic blueberries. In addition, hardly any relationship between demographics...

COOL AND CONSUMERS' WILLINGNESS TO PAY IN THE FRESH PRODUCE INDUSTRY - SOME INITIAL IMPRESSIONS FROM THE FIELD AgEcon
Sterns, James A.; House, Lisa; VanSickle, John J.; Wysocki, Allen F..
The debate about Country-of-Origin labeling (COOL) has centered on the projected benefits and costs of its implementation. This study uses data from a Vickery auction (n=200) to estimate willingness to pay for COOL. Preliminary findings suggest, on average, consumers value COOL, are not homogeneous, and prefer fresh produce grown in the U.S.

Creating a Vision for XYZ Research Corporation: A Case Study AgEcon
Jaramillo, Paul E.; House, Lisa; Wysocki, Allen F..
A strategic analysis was developed for XYZ Research Corporation (the true company's name is disguised). The strategic analysis involved a series of visits to the company to conduct focus groups with its employees and management. Five focus groups were carried out at XYZ Research Corporation. This method proved to be effective and valuable when aiming to gather detailed information on the specifics of a firm's operation. Information and insights on the company and its business that would not become evident through any kind of meticulous financial or economic analysis of the company's and industry's numbers - which in fact were unavailable or scarce - was efficiently obtained by personal communication from the employees in the interviews. The focus group...

Estimating Consumers' Willingness-To-Pay for Country-Of-Origin Labels in Fresh Apples and Tomatoes: A Double-Hurdle Probit Analysis of American Data Using Factor Scores AgEcon
Mabiso, Athur; Sterns, James A.; House, Lisa; Wysocki, Allen F..
Data are collected from primary shoppers in Gainesville Florida, Atlanta Georgia and Lansing Michigan using a Vickrey (fifth-priced sealed bid) experimental auction and a survey questionnaire to provide a sample of 311 observations useable for analysis. The average willingness to pay (WTP) for country of origin labeling (COOL) "Grown in the U.S." in apples and tomatoes are calculated then tested for equivalence to assess if WTP is produce specific. A double-hurdle probit model is then estimated to ascertain the prominent determinants of WTP for COOL. Independent variables include demographics, food safety and factor scores derived from a factor analysis of food quality and food preference variables. Results show that on average consumers are willing to pay...
