The Regional Impact of Lamb Imports on Equilibrium Returns to Domestic Producers, 1967

Hoy Carman and James A. Maetzold

American Journal of Agricultural Economics, 1971, vol. 53, issue 1, 92-100

Abstract: There is little agreement on producer costs and consumer benefits resulting from meat imports. This paper utilizes a spatial equilibrium model to analyze the regional impact of three levels of lamb imports on United States lamb producers and consumers. Results demonstrate regional as well as quarterly variation. Most of the variation is explained by quarterly marketing patterns, shifts in demand, changes in optimum distribution patterns, changes in levels of imports and ports of entry, and restricted ports of entry for imports.
