New Uses For Soybean Products, Keith Heffernan 2015 Iowa State University

New Uses For Soybean Products, Keith Heffernan

Iowa Ag Review

U.S. agribusiness is constantly looking for new opportunities to expand markets for agricultural commodities and value-added products. With that in mind, a project called the Midwest Feeds Consortium, directed by the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development at Iowa State University, designed a study to link product development in agriculture with feed demand in aquaculture. What the consortium research found was that the demand for soybean oil meal and soybean products could be increased 2 percent annually. How? By providing up to 30 percent soybean product in the composition of aquaculture feeds used in the production of domestic fish ...


The Impact Of Crop Insurance On The Iowa Economy, Chad E. Hart, Bruce A. Babcock 2015 Iowa State University

The Impact Of Crop Insurance On The Iowa Economy, Chad E. Hart, Bruce A. Babcock

Iowa Ag Review

During the last several years, federally subsidized crop insurance has become a major issue in both farm risk management and government farm policy. In previous articles for this publication, various aspects of crop insurance, the effects on Iowa farmers, and the costs to both farmers and the government have been examined. This article takes a step back to look at the impacts of crop insurance on the Iowa economy.


Re-Energizing Supply Chains, Bruce A. Babcock 2015 Iowa State University

Re-Energizing Supply Chains, Bruce A. Babcock

Iowa Ag Review

The Internet is fast becoming the focal point for new investments in agriculture. Venture capital is funding Internet startup companies that want to transform the way business is conducted in agriculture; and traditional agricultural suppliers and processors are making online investments. But what is likely to be the outcome of such investments?


Comparing Grain Transportation In The United States And Argentina, Thomas J. Goldsby 2015 Ohio State University

Comparing Grain Transportation In The United States And Argentina, Thomas J. Goldsby

Iowa Ag Review

Whether an individual or nation can compete in the global marketplace hinges on the ability not only to produce materials and goods demanded by customers but also to deliver those materials and goods in an efficient, timely, and safe manner. The transportation and logistics systems that serve a market are critical given that transportation costs typically represent more than one-half of a commodity’s total landed cost. The agricultural sector of the United States enjoys considerable advantages in grain movement and storage, helping to explain the overall trade advantage of the United States over Argentina in common export markets. It ...


The Eu-U.S. Hormone Dispute: The Negotiations Continue, Roxanne L. B. Clemens 2015 Iowa State University

The Eu-U.S. Hormone Dispute: The Negotiations Continue, Roxanne L. B. Clemens

Iowa Ag Review

The European Union’s ban on hormone-treated beef remains one of the United States’s most contentious agricultural trade disputes. Iowa Ag Review last addressed this dispute in the Summer 1999 issue, just after the World Trade Organization (WTO) arbitrator had ruled that the EU ban was inconsistent with WTO sanitary/ phytosanitary principles relating to risk assessment. This article updates negotiating activities and issues regarding the hormone ban.


Patented Agriculture, GianCarlo Moschini 2015 Iowa State

Patented Agriculture, Giancarlo Moschini

Iowa Ag Review

On December 10, 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion that may have important long-run implications for U.S. agriculture. Ruling in J.E.M. Ag Supply, Inc. v. Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., the Court held that plant seeds and plants themselves (both traditionally bred and produced by genetic engineering) are patentable under U.S. law. This opinion concerns a case that started when Pioneer Hi- Bred sued J.E.M. Agricultural Supply (doing business as Farm Advantage) for selling Pioneer hybrid corn seed without Pioneer’s authorization. Pioneer alleged that the seed in question was protected by ...


Disaster Assistance: How Best To Pay When Nature Has Her Way, Chad E. Hart, Bruce A. Babcock 2015 Iowa State University

Disaster Assistance: How Best To Pay When Nature Has Her Way, Chad E. Hart, Bruce A. Babcock

Iowa Ag Review

Over the past several months, Congress, the administration, and various farm groups have debated the type and size of an agricultural disaster assistance package. Drought has affected a large part of the country and could continue to do so in future months (see Map 1). The Senate attached an agricultural disaster assistance package to the Department of the Interior’s appropriation bill. The House has not moved forward on any disaster package. The administration has stated that any disaster assistance must be paid for by budget offsets (that is, other programs must give up funding to pay for the disaster ...


A New Brand Of Agriculture? Farmer-Owned Brands Reward Innovation, Dermot J. Hayes, Sergio H. Lence 2015 Iowa State University

A New Brand Of Agriculture? Farmer-Owned Brands Reward Innovation, Dermot J. Hayes, Sergio H. Lence

Iowa Ag Review

Commodity agriculture as currently practiced in the U.S. Midwest is an extremely efficient way of organizing production and distribution. It allows for inexpensive production and bulk transfer of huge quantities of meat and grain and has resulted in enormous cost savings to U.S. and international consumers. This system has evolved in accordance with market forces, and we expect that these same forces will allow the current system to survive for decades.


Disaster Assistance And Crop Insurance: Time For A New Approach?, Bruce A. Babcock, Chad E. Hart 2015 Iowa State University

Disaster Assistance And Crop Insurance: Time For A New Approach?, Bruce A. Babcock, Chad E. Hart

Iowa Ag Review

Congress has once again passed a disaster assistance program for farmers. This time the drought of 2001 and 2002 was the rationale for the legislation.


Overcoming Information Barriers In Cattle Marketing, Brent Hueth, John D. Lawrence 2015 Iowa State University

Overcoming Information Barriers In Cattle Marketing, Brent Hueth, John D. Lawrence

Iowa Ag Review

Beef consumption has declined steadily over the last two decades, both in total quantity and as a share of U.S. meat consumption. Reductions in the price of pork and poultry and health concerns about the effects of red meat consumption account for much of this trend. However, relative improvements in the quality and consistency of pork and poultry products may also be a factor. Perhaps it is no coincidence that the beef industry has trailed pork and poultry in adopting methods for vertical coordination among the various production stages from farm to market. Contract arrangements and vertical linkages—alliances ...

Geographical Indications, Property Rights, And Value-Added Agriculture, Bruce A. Babcock 2015 Iowa State University

Geographical Indications, Property Rights, And Value-Added Agriculture, Bruce A. Babcock

Iowa Ag Review

What do Vidalia onions, Wisconsin cheese, and Kona coffee have that feta cheese, champagne, and cognac do not? The first three products have trademark protection for their brand names (in this case, through U.S. trademark law). The latter three have no brand name protection, but that could change. Protection would become available for the latter products if E.U. proposals to increase protection for products identified as originating from a particular geographic region—so-called Geographical Indications (GIs)—are adopted. The European Union proposes to (1) establish a register of GIs that would give protection to products across international boundaries ...


Keeping Farmers On The Land: Agritourism In The European Union, Roxanne L. B. Clemens 2015 Iowa State University

Keeping Farmers On The Land: Agritourism In The European Union, Roxanne L. B. Clemens

Iowa Ag Review

A relatively small amount of arable land, high population density, and high land and labor costs in several E.U. countries make it difficult for many families to stay on farmland that has been handed down for generations. Direct government help is limited because the European Union is under pressure to reduce agricultural subsidies. As part of the policy package developed to address these issues, the European Union has created incentives for producers to add value to agricultural production by participating in agritourism.

Drought Tolerance And Risk In The U.S. Crop Insurance Program, Bruce A. Babcock, Tian Yu 2015 Iowa State University

Drought Tolerance And Risk In The U.S. Crop Insurance Program, Bruce A. Babcock, Tian Yu

Iowa Ag Review

Are farmers paying too much for crop insurance? It sure seems so, at least in the Corn Belt. With the exception of 2008 when a large drop in price triggered payments, Corn Belt farmers have generally paid more into the program than they have gotten out, despite Congress’s intention that farmers get at least two dollars for each dollar they pay into the program.


Examining The Health Of The U.S. Crop Insurance Industry, Bruce A. Babcock 2015 Iowa State University

Examining The Health Of The U.S. Crop Insurance Industry, Bruce A. Babcock

Iowa Ag Review

In late September the Risk Management Agency (RMA) of USDA released the results of commissioned studies that calculated the rate of return that U.S. crop insurance companies have received from selling multi-peril crop insurance (MPCI). Since 2000, the average annual rate of return on equity has been 19 percent. The study also estimated that a reasonable rate of return over the same time period for this line of business would be about 11 percent. One straightforward interpretation of this difference is that since 2000, the crop insurance industry has received a rate of return that is 72 percent higher ...


Is There An Optimal Month To Forward Contract?, Dermot J. Hayes 2015 Iowa State University

Is There An Optimal Month To Forward Contract?, Dermot J. Hayes

Agricultural Policy Review

Futures and forward contracts for harvest delivery should be efficient predictors of the price at harvest, with no obvious trend in profitability of hedging across various months. However, data collected from 1993 to 2013 reveals that there may actually be an economically optimal time for grain producers to forward contract.

El Insostenible Desperdicio De Alimentos: ¿Qué Podemos Hacer Los Consumidores?, Luis González Vaqué 2015 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Dereho Alimentario

El Insostenible Desperdicio De Alimentos: ¿Qué Podemos Hacer Los Consumidores?, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

Abstract: All of us - farmers and fishers; food processors and supermarkets; local and national governments; individual consumers - must make changes at every link of the human food chain to prevent food wastage from happening in the first place, and re-use or recycle it when we can't. We simply cannot allow one-third of all the food we produce to go to waste or be lost because of inappropriate practices, when 870 million people go hungry every day. On consumer side, raising awareness of the problem - and how to prevent it - is very important. Better communication among all participants in food ...
