RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN INDUSTRIALIZED AGRICULTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONSEQUENCES: THE CASE OF VERTICAL COORDINATION IN BROILERS AND HOGS

Laura L. Martin and Kelly Zering ()

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1997, vol. 29, issue 1, 12

Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between industrialized production in the pork and broiler industries and the natural environment. Historical perspectives are presented regarding the movement toward increasingly concentrated and coordinated pork and broiler production units in the South. The relationships between animal by-product management and environmental quality, both at the farm level and within a geographic region, are addressed. Using the North Carolina pork industry as a background, current regulations and potential policy implications to protect environmental quality are discussed.
