Abstract: Centralized remote-access markets using computer technology are a possible alternative to conventional markets for most agricultural commodities. This study empirically analyzes the allocative efficiency of such a market for feeder cattle. Results show a statistically significant price level premium in the electronic market over conventional auction markets for feeder cattle.
