Economic and noneconomic factors in the diffusion of technology: Maine dairy farmers, 1964 to 1974


, : Economic and noneconomic factors in the diffusion of technology: Maine dairy farmers, 1964 to 1974. Dissertation Abstracts International, A 41(6): p. 2705

Social and economic aspects of technological change are examined. A survey questionnaire completed by 180 dairy farmers provided information on farm size, location, income, operator's age, education, experience, family, future plans, outlook and contact with other farmers and extension staff. The adoption of six specific dairying practices (maize silage, free stall housing, milking parlours, computerized financial records, artificial insemination and production testing) was examined.
