The economic effects of regulations

Ask livestock producers about their biggest concerns and “excessive regulations” will probably be one of their top answers.

Dr. David Anderson is a professor and Extension livestock and food products economist with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service.  His presentation at the NIAA conference was entitled “Supply Chain and the Economic Effects of Regulations”.  Afterwards, we visited with Anderson, who admits it’s a tough topic to address because no one really knows the true costs—and, in some cases, the true benefits—that regulations bring to animal agriculture.
