ACCOUNTING FOR MANAGEMENT IN COST OF LIVESTOCK DISEASE STUDIES

Assessing the impacts of livestock disease on productivity is enhanced when the management abilities of producers are taken into consideration. One method of doing this is to develop a management index of several production/marketing practices using correspondence analysis which can combine several practices into a few variables. Also, through correspondence analysis herds can be divided into better managed and more poorly managed herds to test the association of management on herd health, productivity, and profitability.
