No 19218, 2005 Annual meeting, July 24-27, Providence, RI from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: There have been concerns about the increasing concentration in the meat packing industry. But this increased concentration may be due to various types of cost economies. In this paper we prove the existence of scale economies that might justify the increased consolidation in the industry.
