U.S. DEMAND FOR LAMB: THE OTHER RED MEAT

Patrick J. Byrne, Oral Capps and Gary Williams

Journal of Food Distribution Research, 1993, vol. 24, issue 1, 9

Abstract: The analysis focused on economic forces influencing U.S. lamb consumption at the consumer level. The demand for lamb was shown to be inelastic. Key determinants of lamb consumption were habit persistence, seasonality, own price, and the price of pork. Income, trend and the price of beef were not statistically important factors.
