Determinants of milk and meat yields of cattle in Senegal
The purpose of this article is to identify the determinants of the milk and meat yield of cattle in Senegal. To estimate our models, we used a Johansen error correction model. The results reveal that in the long term, feed is a significant determinant of the milk and meat yields of cattle. The price of milk and that of beef also have respectively a positive effect on the yield of milk and beef. On the other hand, the price of meat is negatively linked to the milk yield of cattle.
