RISK SHARING IN POULTRY CONTRACTS

Previous literature has found that 84% of risk in poultry grow-out farms is transferred to the integrator.

We do not find this to be the case with more recent contracts, which include a market price clause. We also use VaR methodology to look at the risk inherent in the new contracts.
