dc.description.abstractThis article analyzes the adoption and profitability of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST) in the United States. Probit model results show that location of the farm, farm size, operator age and education, and other technologies adopted influence rBST adoption. Regression model results find that adoption of rBST influences milk yield per cow but not profitability, unless profitability is analyzed by farm-size segment.en_US
