"Technological Change and Convergence in Crops and Livestock Production"
by Ludena, Carlos, Thomas Hertel, Paul Preckel, Alejandro Nin-Pratt and Ken Foster

Data limitation on input allocation has limited agricultural economists in measuring sub-sector productivity growth in agriculture. However, recent developments allow now to estimate total factor productivity (TFP) growth for crops and livestock accounting for input-output allocation. This paper extends previous work on TFP measurement for livestock into ruminants and non-ruminant (pigs and poultry) productivity measurement, given the differences in productivity growth rates among these species. The results show the non-ruminant sector as more dynamic than the ruminant sector, with poultry driving most of the growth in that sub-sector. Given these rates of productivity growth, non-ruminant productivity in developing countries may be converging to the productivity levels of developed countries.
