Abstract

Weaber and Miller (2004) said “The structure of the cattle industry has changed dramatically over time, particularly in the packing and feeding segments. It’s a change driven by market dynamics that require participants to minimize production costs while at the same time, maintaining or improving quality. Producers that have met these two demands have remained in business through the various ‘boom or bust’ cycles in the beef industry.”
