Primary demand for red meats in the United Kingdom

Analysis of the farm-level demand for red meats (beef, pigmeat and lamb) in the U.K from 1989 to 1998

Year of Publication2000

A flexible differential inverse systems model is employed in this study to analyze the farm level demand for red meats (beef, pigmeat and lamb) in the U.K for the period 1989:1 to 1998:12. The empirical results suggest that preferences over red meats are homothetic and separable in the partition ((pork, lamb), beef). They also suggest that beef and pork are closer substitutes, compared with beef and lamb.
