Operation Efficiency and Influencing Factors of Listed Companies of Swine Industry: Empirical Analysis Based on Data of 16 Listed Companies in 2010-2014

Listed companies of the swine industry, as an important form of agricultural industrialized operation, are typical representatives of large-scale production and the level of their operation efficiency exerts a direct influence on the healthy development of the swine industry. Using the DEA-based Malmquist method, this paper made a static and dynamic evaluation of the operation efficiency of 16 listed companies in China's swine industry in 2010-2014. It obtained following results: (i) The overall efficiency of listed companies of China’s swine industry remained at high level and the development trend was excellent. (ii) Different types of enterprises had difference in the overall efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency. In general, pig feed processing companies had the best performance, followed by slaughtering and deep processing companies, and swine breeding companies were the worst. (iii) The total factor productivity characterized by the Malmquist index declined year by year in 2010-2013 and was improved in 2014, mainly due to technological progress. (iv) The total asset turnover ratio, equity concentration, and R & D management level had a significantly positive impact on the operation efficiency of listed companies in the swine industry, while the human capital had a significantly negative impact.
