Abstract

We empirically evaluated the role of the red meat industry towards employment in South Africa�s agricultural sector. The paper used liner regression and delta method in the analysis. The results indicate that overall, a two-year extension of statutory levy regime in the red meat industry will positively influence employment (by 38%) in the economy. Although the focus was on the red meat industry, the increase in employment will occur along the various stages of the sheep and cattle value chains as well as in the other closely associated industries like the agro-processing and services industries.
