|Title: ||RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MARKET PRICE SIGNALS AND PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT: THE CASE OF FED BEEF|

|Abstract: ||The beef industry in the United States consists of several distinct production levels ranging from the cow-calf producer at the lowest level to the final consumer. These sectors face varying levels of profitability, degrees of market power, conflicting goals, and price signals. Environmental regulations involve questions of what costs are involved, who is in a position to pay these costs, and whether market prices are capable of signaling different environmental practices. Understanding the relationships within the beef industry may allow researchers to fine-tune analyses of environmental issues in the beef industry.|
