Analisi della produzione e consumo della carne di coniglio: un modello di equilibrio parziale

Published 2009-06-01


Within the Italian animal breeding sector, rabbit is one of the most important species and it is of great interest also at international level. The rabbit breeding sector is characterized by high variability of market prices which fluctuate in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. This trend is determined by technical factors but also by the business climate and structural problems. The fluctuation of market prices causes problems for the breeders in combining the supply with the demand. Therefore, the breeders are interested in having knowledge of the relationship of price and quantity produced, in order to plan their production. The partial equilibrium model identifies the above mentioned relationship and determine the quantity of meat that should be supplied on the market so that the producer’s price equals the cost of production.
