Packer sorting strategies for fresh pork
Characteristics of pork packing firms pursuing a competitive strategy of product differentiation are described. Such a strategy requires a consistent, highquality raw material. Three strategies to sort pork carcasses and primal cuts in the packing plant are detailed. A multivariate simulation replicated two distributions (based upon genetics) of hogs that a focus-differentiation packer might purchase: an average industry distribution and a lean, more uniform distribution. The results indicated that the leaner distribution had more loins and hams within the packer's desired weight range which provides an economic incentive to focus-differentiation packers for procuring leaner hogs. © 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
