12 III. KANDIYOHI COUNTY LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY ECONOMIC IMPACTS Multipliers Multipliers describe the response of the economy to an increase (or decrease) in production by a specific economic sector. Direct impact represents the response in production output of an industry. Indirect impact measures the response by all local industries affected by the increase in output due to purchases between industries. Induced impact represents the response by all local industries caused by the expenditures of new income generated by the direct and indirect impacts. Total impact is the sum of direct, indirect, and induced impacts. Output multipliers In the table below, output multipliers for dairy farm products show that for every million dollar increase in dairy output, the direct impact is $1 million, indirect impact is $0.3 million, induced impact is $0.01 million, and total impact is $1.40 million. Therefore, one million dollar increase in dairy production generates a total of $1.40 million for all industry sectors. Table-6: Output Impact for Livestock Sectors Based on $1 million change in output Direct Indirect Induced Total Sectors Impact Impact Impact Impact Production: Dairy Farm Products Poultry and Eggs Ranch Fed Cattle Range Fed Cattle Cattle Feedlots Sheep, Lambs and Goats Hogs, Pigs and Swine Miscellaneous Livestock Processing: Poultry Processing Meat Packing

13 Employment multipliers Employment multipliers represent the jobs that are generated by direct, indirect, induced and total impacts. In the table below, employment multipliers for dairy farm products show that for every million-dollar increase in dairy output, the direct impact is 4.7 jobs, indirect impact is 4.3 jobs, induced impact is 1.8 jobs, and total impact is 10.8 jobs. Therefore, one million dollar increase in dairy production generates a total of 11 jobs for all industry sectors. Table-7: Employment Impact for Livestock Sectors Based on $1 million change in output Direct Indirect Induced Total Sectors Impact Impact Impact Impact Production: Dairy Farm Products Poultry and Eggs Ranch Fed Cattle Range Fed Cattle Cattle Feedlots Sheep Hogs Miscellaneous Livestock Processing: Poultry Processing Meat Packing

14 Kandiyohi County Livestock Industry Output Impact Livestock is a $268 million industry in Kandiyohi County (direct impact). It also generates $165 million as indirect impact and $37 million as induced impact. The total impact (economic ripple effect ) of livestock production and processing in Kandiyohi County is $470 million annually. Chart-6: Livestock Industry Output Impact Million Dollars 500 $ $ $ $ Direct Indirect Induced Total The largest supporting sectors are agriculture, manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, services, and transportation. The supporting sectors and spin-off industries generate indirect and induced impacts for livestock production and processing.

FIRE: Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate. TCPU: Transportation, Communication, and Public Utilities. 14

16 Employment Impact Livestock industry provides 1,832 jobs in direct employment, including 610 in livestock production and 1,222 in livestock processing. Spin-off industries (such as transportation, wholesale trade, and services, etc.) employ an additional 2,213 workers. In total, Kandiyohi County livestock industry supports 4,046 jobs.
