000162435 520__ $$aThis study determines scale and technical efficiencies, productivity, other economic performance measures, and efficiency drivers for U.S. meat goat operations. We estimate an input distance function (IDF) using stochastic production frontier techniques (SPF). Empirical Monte Carlo (MC) simulation techniques are used to show the consistency of small-sample properties for the IDF.
