Michael R. Thomsen, Goodwin, Harold L., and Angela Rodriquez

No 20418, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A math program is used to examine an integrators problem of assigning broiler growers into settlement pools. The integrator varies the size and frequency of flock placements by grower ability. This differentiates grower incentives by ability. Which growers receive the strongest incentives depends on amount of excess grow-out capacity.
