Cost of Organic Pork Production

Iowa State University's Ben Larson and Professor James Kliebenstein (Department of Economics) and Associate Professor Mark Honeyman (Department of Animal Science) investigate the cost of organic pork production. Not surprisingly, they found it costs more to produce organic pork than conventional pork. There were also seasonal differences: moving from a seasonal (summer only) farrowing system to continuous farrowing had significant cost implications.
