Abstract


The aim of this study is to analyse the efficiency of livestock operations in the Valencian Community, particularly for pig, which currently provides the greatest economic weight to the agricultural GDP of the community. By creating a production function representative of the existing allocations on farms, the farms that reach an optimal level of production in the absence of inefficiencies will be determined. The results will help determine standards that facilitate error correction to improve the competitiveness of the sector.
