Abstract

This article examines the rate of adoption of four computerized technologies in U.S. dairy production : an on-farm computer to manage dairy records, accessing the internet for dairy information, computerized milking systems and computerized feed delivery systems. Data from the USDA-Agricultural Resource Management Survey were used for the analysis. Computers for managing records were used by most farmers, but adoption rates for the remaining technologies were much lower. Adoption rates differed by demographics, financial status, farm size and adoption of other technologies. Farm profitability differed by adoption status.
