Dairy Market Participation with Endogenous Livestock Ownership: Evidence from Cote d'Ivoire

This study evaluates determinants of dairy market participation by agricultural households in Cote d’Ivoire by using the Heckman selection model to correct for endogenous cattle ownership. A key result is that ignoring the population of non-owners biases estimates of market participation parameters. These findings are important in light of the widespread application of livestock market participation analyses that assume cattle ownership is exogeneous.
