SCALE ECONOMIES AND ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE IN SOUTHEASTERN U.S. COW-CALF PRODUCTION

The objective of this study is to assess the scale and technical efficiencies and other economic performance measures of southeastern U.S. cow-calf farms. We describe and compare cow-calf operations by size and farm resource region and measure their relative competitiveness. We estimate an input distance function using stochastic production frontier techniques (SPF).
