Abstract

Excerpt from report objectives: Little information currently is available on the marketing of livestock or meat in Texas and Oklahoma. As an initial effort, therefore, this study is designed to (1) reveal structural characteristics of the marketing system for meat, (2) examine recent changes in basic economic forces such as population, income and adjustments at the retail and farm level and accompanying changes in the Southern Plains meat industry, (3) evaluate recent adjustments in market structure and practices, (4) develop preliminary recommendations with respect to adjustments in market structure that appear consistent with improvements in market performance, and (5) provide data and suggestions on needed areas for additional research. Emphasis in this initial study is placed primarily upon current market structure and historical changes in structure.
