Alternative Analyses of Farm Growth

Four strategies for farm growth are analyzed and compared on the basis of ownership, equity, and productive capacity achieved, and on the basis of resistance to adversity. The primary tool of analysis was a model utilizing a stochastic simulator interfaced with both ex ante and ex post linear programming routines. The performance of the growth strategies differed markedly with respect to the various indicators. It appeared that little was gained from using a stochastic model rather than a deterministic one.
