Estimation of factor demand and substitution in the Australian pig industry: a dual approach

Review of Marketing and Agricultural Economics 61(2 (I)): 157-168
Estimation of factor demand and substitution in the Australian pig industry: a dual approach
This study seeks to estimate the rate by which inputs in Australian pig production are substituted for one another when prices change. It employs a dual approach to response analysis. Using cost shares of inputs and input price indexes for the period 1977/78-1990/91, a set of equations derived from a transcendental logarithmic function is estimated with symmetry and homogeneity constraints imposed.
