This research is to investigate whether changes in effluent standards can affect the productivity of the hog-raising industry in Taiwan. Our empirical results show that the strictness of the BOD, COD and SS standards can have an impact on the productivity of the hog-raising industry. Effluent standards changed in 1993 cause the Taiwanese hog-raising industry to shift its cost curve. Effluent standards change in 1998 did not cause a shift in the cost equation. Effluent standards changed in 2004 caused the costs of the Taiwanese hog-raising industry to increase by 52% in comparison to those under the 1993 standard. The vertical shift of cost curve implies that the productivity has been changed.
