|Abstract: ||Using USDA’s Agricultural Resource Management Survey data, factors leading to the
adoption of technology, management practices, and production systems by U.S. beef cow-calf
producers are analyzed. Binary logit regression models are used to determine impacts of
vertical integration; region of the U.S.; farm size, diversification, and tenure; and demographics
on adoption decisions. Significant differences were found in adoption rates by region
of the U.S., degree of vertical integration, and size of operation, suggesting the presence of
economies of size and vertical economies of scope. Results also indicate high degrees of
complementarity among technologies, management practices, and production systems.|
