Characterization of livestock producers and livestock production units that are beneficiaries of the livestock productivity incentives program (progan) in México


The PROGAN has been criticized, just like other agricultural support governmental programs, because it does not start with a diagnosis of the real situation that cattle production has and, therefore, does not take into consideration the differences between producers, an important aspect in the design of public policies. The objective of this research was to characterize economically and productively the livestock producers that integrate the registry of PROGAN beneficiaries in México, in order to clarify the conditions in which extensive livestock production is carried out, and allowing in the long term a differentiation of policies. The study was based on 977 surveys, and the analysis methodology used was Factor Analysis, which as a statistical technique for data reduction turned out to be efficient in identifying six factors which were used to adjust the sample and characterize it in four types of producers with different levels of economic and productive development.
