Estimating Regional Demand for Feed Barley: A Linear-Programming Approach

The regional demand for feed grains is not directly observable. This study uses a programming model to derive a demand schedule for feed barley. The model is applied to a major barley producing region (North Dakota and Minnesota) and an important feed deficit region (California). Direct and cross-price elasticities are evaluated, and sensitivity analysis shows the potential impact of improved barley varieties on regional demand.
