# How to interpret estimated coefficient of ordered logit regression which has a negative value

What is the interpretation of the negative estimate ($b$ value) in an ordered logit regression?

That is, an "increase of one unit in the independent variable results in an increase or decrease of the odds ratio of the dependent variable..."

For context, my exponentiated $b$ value is 0.869 for feed cost (independent variable) and the dependent variable is income in poultry and it is in ordinal level of measurement.
