The Cost Of Regulating Hog Manure Storage Facilities And Land Application Techniques, Bruce A. Babcock, Ronald A. Fleming, Dwaine S. Bundy Jun 1997

The Cost Of Regulating Hog Manure Storage Facilities And Land Application Techniques, Bruce A. Babcock, Ronald A. Fleming, Dwaine S. Bundy

CARD Briefing Papers

Much of the recent public concern over Iowa livestock production is focused on hogs, especially on the manner in which hog manure is stored and land applied. This report estimates the financial costs of implementing two regulations regarding the storage and disposition of manure: the first would require that all outside earthen storage basins and anaerobic lagoons be covered; the second would require that manure applied to crop acreage be immediately incorporated into the soil. The report also estimates the possible aggregate impact of the two regulations on the competitiveness of the Iowa hog industry.

World Trade Impacts Of Foot And Mouth Disease In Taiwan, Frank H. Fuller, Jacinto F. Fabiosa, Velupillai Premakumar

CARD Briefing Papers

The recent ban on pork exports from Taiwan resulting from an outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in March 1997 will significantly alter future world trade patterns in pork. This study provides an in-depth analysis of the price and trade effects of this export ban. The analysis uses the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) model of world agricultural production and trade to simulate the removal of Taiwan's pork exports from world markets. The model enables examination of the interaction among pork, other meats, feed grains, and protein meal feeds.

CARD Briefing Papers

The Export Enhancement Program (EEP) was initiated under the Food Security Act of 1985 to offset the adverse effects of unfair trade practices on U.S. exports and to support U.S. prices. More recently, EEP has been constrained by both GATT and the FAIR Act. This study measures the impacts of the elimination of the EEP on U.S. wheat exports and prices over the coming 10-year period. The commodity trade models at the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) are used to analyze the policy question.
