Catfish Producer Harvest Response to Production and Asymmetric Price Risk

  • William Branch (a1) and Daniel S. Tilley (a1)


Harvest response to production and asymmetric price risk was analyzed using an ordinary least squares model. Statistically significant responses to production-quality and output price risk were indicated. Results suggest that alternative pricing strategies designed to reduce risk may alter harvest response and decrease month to month harvest variability.
