  • The Q method and subjective perceptions of food in the 1990s

    Fairweather, J. R.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    Results of a study of people's perception of food are presented in this report. The Q method was used to factor analyse the data from 59 subjects who sorted statements about food. Four types are described and labelled the Gregarious Gourmet, the Virtuous Vegetarian, the Tradition Meat Eater and the Selective Connoisseur. These types account for the main variations in perception of food and each type has a distinctive subjective experience of food. The results have implications for marketing, dietary and nutrition practitioners, and for the sociology of food and eating.

  • Instream water values : Canterbury's Rakaia and Waimakariri Rivers

    Kerr, G. N.; Sharp, B. M. H.; Leathers, K. L.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    This paper reports previously unpublished results from an early study of instream values associated with two Canterbury Rivers, the Waimakariri and the Rakaia. The studies utilised several different approaches to valuation and assessed different types of value. The Rakaia River study estimated recreational use benefits, the value of salmon management, and nonuse benefits from protection of instream flows. The Waimakariri River studies measured nonuse benefits from protection of instream flows and the benefits from improved water quality.

  • Standardization of farm accounts for managerial analysis

    Guise, J. W. B.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    With the rapid growth in farm management advisory services, increasing attention is now required by accountants to the improvements required in farm accounts if they are to be used effectively for farm management analysis. For this purpose the accounts should be so designed to provide information, on which to formulate policies and decisions for the future, rather than as traditional records of profits earned in the past. In this bulletin, the author discusses the changes of emphasis in farm accounts, which are required for farm management analysis.

  • Recent trends in the Argentinian wool industry

    Martin, Sandra K.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    Argentina is one of the five major wool producing and exporting countries in the world. Because of the traditionally large proportion of coarser wools in the Argentinian wool clip, wool exports from Argentina have historically been considered a major competitor with New Zealand exports. It is logical, therefore, that the New Zealand wool industry should take interest in, and be watchful of, Argentinian wool production, consumption and exporting trends. The current report represents part of a programme aimed at fulfilling such a need by examining recent trends in the wool industry of Argentina.

  • Economics of the sheep breeding operations of the Department of Lands and Survey

    McArthur, A. T. G.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    Performance recording is an important tool that can be used by sheep breeders in sheep selection. Raising the average performance of the flock via such a procedure is a mechanism whereby output can be increased from farms without increasing sheep numbers. Alternatively, with higher per head performance, the same output can be achieved at a lower cost. This report, written by A.T.G. McArthur, reader in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Marketing at the College, gives an economic evaluation of a performance recording scheme used by the Department of Lands and Survey. The evaluation is effected in terms of an equivalent annual return and is subjected to an uncertainty analysis. Economic evaluations of such technologies and procedures are important if decision makers are to be guided as to the efficiency and distributional effects of different actions.
