Evaluating Advertising Using Split-Cable Scanner Data: Some Methodological Issues, Helen H. Jensen, John R. Schroeter Mar 1989

Evaluating Advertising Using Split-Cable Scanner Data: Some Methodological Issues, Helen H. Jensen, John R. Schroeter

CARD Working Papers

Relatively new split-cable scanner data collection methods have facilitated controlled market tests of household responses to food commodity promotion. Analysis of such data from a fresh-beef advertising experiment in Grand Junction, Colorado, showed that although experimental advertising failed to increase the level of demand, it did appear to influence feature-price buying patterns. There was an increase in demand for beef over the advertising period, unrelated to the effects of the experimental advertising itself.

Direct Selling Is A Plus For Cattle Producers, P G. Frapple Jan 1989

Direct Selling Is A Plus For Cattle Producers, P G. Frapple

Journal of the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia, Series 4

The aim when marketing cattle is to maximise the net return with the minimum level of risk. To do this a producer needs an accurate description of the stock for sale and information on the likely gross returns and costs of selling through the different marketing systems.

Since producers' selling costs and processors' buying costs are lower in direct sales, it is more likely that net returns from direct delivery will be higher.


Increasing Profit On Dairy Farms, G R. Olney, Warren Standing Jan 1989

Increasing Profit On Dairy Farms, G R. Olney, Warren Standing

Journal of the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia, Series 4

Farmers continually make decisions on all aspects of their farms that influence profit. For dairy farmers these include the number of cows, calving pattern, level and type of supplementary feeding, area of each pasture type and fodder crop, and the areas for hay or silage, or both. The extent and type of the beef sideline operations also influence the overall profitability of the farm.

The WesternAustralian Dairy Farm Model (WADFM) is a whole farm model developed by the Western Australian Department of Agriculture to help farmers maximise profits by considering all effects of such decisions on the farm.
