Economics Of Wool Marketing In Utah, E. Jay Berry

Economics Of Farm Flock Sheep Production In Northern Utah, Bruce E. Nielson May 1961

Economics Of Farm Flock Sheep Production In Northern Utah, Bruce E. Nielson

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Throughout the history of mankind, sheep have played a very important and unique part in the economies of the world. They have been a source of meat, milk, skins and fiber. They have become adapted to nearly every kind of husbandry, from nomadic types to intensively managed flocks on small farms and have thrived under nearly all climatic conditions, ranging from sub-artic regions of Greenland to hot areas of the mediterranean countries; from desert areas of Africa to wet lowland of England.

Domestic sheep were introduced on the American continent by Spanish discovered and conquerors in 1493. (8, p.281 ...

Application Of Several Econometric Techniques To A Theory Of Demand With Variable Tastes , Robert L. Basmann Jan 1955

Application Of Several Econometric Techniques To A Theory Of Demand With Variable Tastes , Robert L. Basmann

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Existing theory of consumer demand does not contain a body of theorems purporting to explain the consumption behavior of individuals when their preferences are changed, either autonomously or by advertising and other forms of selling effort. In view of the importance of advertising in the modern economy, it is desirable that such a body of theorems be worked out. The objective of this study is the formulation of a theory of consumer demand with variable preferences; the governing criterion is that the theory be applicable in econometric demand analysis;The assumption that the individual consumer has only one ordinal utility ...


The Economics Of Rural Residential Zoning In Utah County, Max K. Buchmiller May 1954

The Economics Of Rural Residential Zoning In Utah County, Max K. Buchmiller

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Change in the use to which land is put may affect the economic and social return from it. Land-use changes tend to be rather permanent in nature. They should be guided so that social welfare will be served best. Rural Zoning has developed from this need to direct change in land use in rural areas.

It first came into use about twenty-four years ago but was developed from much older, urban-zoning experience. By 1949, rural-zoning ordinances had been adopted by 173 counties in 23 states. Thirty-eight states had passed enabling acts permitting the adoption of rural-zoning ordinances by specified political ...


Economic Analysis Of Forage Production And Utilization In Dakota And Dixon Counties, Nebraska, Howard W. Ottoson Nov 1953

Economic Analysis Of Forage Production And Utilization In Dakota And Dixon Counties, Nebraska, Howard W. Ottoson

Historical Research Bulletins of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

Soil erosion remains a serious problem on many Nebraska farms despite programs of financial assistance, technical aid, and education by several national and state agencies. One reason that soil conserving adjustments in land use have not been made by farmers is that considerable uncertainty surrounds the economics of soil erosion control on the farm level. This study is an attempt to increase knowledge and reduce some of the uncertainty with regard to the economics of erosion control in a specific area.

Economics Of The Production Of Ethanol, L. A. (Lewis Albert) Kremer Jan 1949

Economics Of The Production Of Ethanol, L. A. (Lewis Albert) Kremer

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The cost of producing alcohol naturally varies with the raw material and with the process. In the case of corn alcohol, the raw material charge is the major cost item; therefore, instead of selecting one cost for alcohol from corn, a graph is presented showing estimated cost of producing alcohol vs. the price of corn. The graph is a straight line showing an alcohol cost of 27 to 30 cents per gallon with corn at 40 cents per bushel and an alcohol cost of 83 to 86 cents with corn at $2.00 per bushel. Molasses alcohol is made from ...
