Reproductive performance on the dairy farm affects the dairy’s profit because it directly affects milk production, the availability of replacements, the amounts of voluntary and involuntary culling, breeding costs, and costs associated with veterinary care (Britt, 1985). Reproductive management programs selected for implementation differ across farms due to varying on-farm costs, such as labor costs, opportunity costs of management and labor, as well as facilities, farm goals and values, and management styles. The objective of this paper is to summarize survey data in order to aid in providing economic insight into why varying types of farms utilize different methods of reproductive management and differing reproductive technologies.
