PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENCY OF SOUTHEASTERN U.S. MEAT GOAT FARMS

This study determines efficiency drivers, scale and technical efficiencies, and other economic performance measures for Southeastern U.S. meat goat farms. We estimate an input distance function (IDF) using stochastic production frontier (SPF) techniques. Empirical Monte Carlo (MC) simulation techniques are employed to show the consistency of small-sample properties for the IDF.
