THE INCREASING IMPORTANCE OF LABOR MANAGEMENT ON LARGE DAIRY FARMS

In this paper, the changing characteristics of the labor input on large dairy farms (those with more than 100 cows) are first examined. The four functions (procurement, development, motivation and maintenance) of a farm labor manager are then defined. The heart of the paper is a discussion of the implications of large dairy farm characteristics for each farm labor management function.
