Factors Influencing Beef Reproductive Technology Adoption

Adopting technologies such as artificial insemination, and the associated improvements in beef herd genetics better position livestock producers to meet anticipated demand increases for high-quality beef. If we examine the factors that influence technology adoption, then we will be better able to envision the producer operations of the future. This research examines Missouri cow-calf producer survey data to determine the impact that producer, operation, and management characteristics; production risk; and location have on the adoption of reproductive technologies regionally. Binary choice models are estimated to assess adoption of artificial insemination and estrus synchronization (AIES).
