INTERREGIONAL ADVANTAGES IN BROILER PRODUCTION: THE POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF NAVIGATION USER CHARGES

The objective was to determine what effect the imposition of navigation user charges would have on geographical location of the broiler industry. A transportation model was developed which incorporated the basic production, consumption, and cost characteristics of the broiler industry. Eight production areas were chosen. Budgets including the costs of assembling, producing, processing, and transporting broilers were formulated for each production area. The model was then evaluated under different production and cost specifications.
