ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION AND IMPLICATIONS FOR U.S. PORK EXPORTS

Mark R. Metcalfe

No 21808, 2000 Annual meeting, July 30-August 2, Tampa, FL from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Environmental concerns linked to hog production are growing in the United States and the European Union and therefore new regulations controlling animal manure management are being imposed to address these concerns. This study determines that potential increases in U.S. environmental regulation would have minimal effects on the relative competitiveness of U.S. pork exports, while much more stringent EU regulation has the potential to significantly impact EU competitiveness and contribute to continued increases in U.S. pork export quantities.
