Procesos decisorios y eficiencia productiva: ganadería argentina


  • Marcos Gallacher
  • Daniel Lema


During the last decades substantial increases in both output as well as productivity have taken place in Argentine cereal and oilseed production. This has not been the case of livestock production, where both output as well as productivity increases have been modest. This paper – of an exploratory nature – analyzes some of the challenges involved in estimating productivity differences in livestock enterprises. The objective is to point out data needs to (i) quantify productivity differences and (ii) explain why these differences exist. This paper is a part of a research project focused on the measurement of efficiency of livestock production using farm-level data. Resumen: Las últimas décadas han sido testigo de importantes aumentos de producción y productividad en la producción de cereales y oleaginosas argentina. Lo mismo no ha ocurrido en la producción ganadera, donde los incrementos tanto de producción como de productividad han sido modestos. Este trabajo – de naturaleza exploratoria – analiza algunos de los desafíos implícitos en estimar productividad en empresas ganaderas. El objetivo plantear que datos serían necesarios a fin de (i) cuantificar diferenciales de productividad, y (ii) explicar las razones por las cuales estos diferenciales existen. El trabajo forma parte de un proyecto más amplio de investigación sobre medición de eficiencia en ganadería utilizando datos a nivel empresa.
