Table 4 Independent changes needed for no change in feedlot sector producer surplus

From: Market impacts of E. Coli vaccination in U.S. Feedlot cattle

  No animal performance impact With animal performance impact
Domestic retail beef demand increase 1.7% 3.0%
Wholesale export beef demand increase 18.1% 32.6%
Retail beef (retailer) cost decrease 2.2% 3.9%
Wholesale beef (packer) cost decrease 1.2% 2.2%
  1. Note: Values are the exogenous responses (demand increases or cost savings) resulting in cumulative net present value of producer surplus not changing at the fed cattle level (feedlots). Demand increases on all beef production were considered while cost savings evaluated corresponded only to the portion of product retailers or packers would receive from E. coli vaccination programs reflecting the 10-year adoption path assumed.
