Cattlemen used a private organization to address the problem. Some commons problems are solved by reliance on state action-as with the Yellowstone bison and the British footand-mouth disease. The state offered the lowest-cost means of controlling diseased animals because it could compel action. Each of these mechanisms has costs and benefits. Individual private action requires no investment in coordination mechanisms with others who face the same afflictions or benefits, but also offers little opportunity to share fixed costs or to avoid free riding by others.
