Abstract : Throughout its history, the econometric analysis of slaughter livestock has been characterized by diversity of opinion on numerous fundamental issues. The issues include the relationships between slaughter weight and prices, changes in consumer preferences for meat, the interdependence of slaughter livestock prices (such as hog, fed cattle, and nonfed cattle prices), the interdependence of prices and storage stocks, and seasonality. The resolution of these issues is discussed in this paper. New techniques are proposed, and regression models based on these techniques are given. (Author)
