Market Coordination in the Beef Stocker Sector: Short and Long Run Implications of Higher Corn Prices


  • Peel, Derrell S.


Beef industry sectors are coordinated by a relatively subtle combination of absolute price levels and price relationships across feeder cattle weights. This paper presents a conceptual framework to understand market based coordination of production in the beef industry. The paper illustrates with examples from history and discusses the implications of permanently higher corn prices.
