Product price is not filled in. This product cannot be purchased.
James M. MacDonald (au)
Broilers, young chickens bred for meat, account for nearly all U.S. chicken consumption. U.S. production of broilers grew rapidly until the mid-1990s, but growth then began to slow and production declined in 2009, with very modest growth since then. The industryńˇ╗s distinctive organization ńˇţ with a high degree of vertical integration, nearly complete reliance on contract growers to raise chickens for poultry companies, and grower compensation based on relative performance ńˇţ helped fuel growth in the early period, with good returns and low risks for growers. However, slowing growth has placed new financial pressures on the industry and its organization. The industry is the subject of several important policy debates relating to competition, environmental regulation, international trade, and public health. This report delineates the key features of the industryńˇ╗s organization and analyzes the industryńˇ╗s recent financial and productive performance, with a focus on contract growers. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
