Abstract: Tritrichimonas foetus vaccine has been marketed since 1989 to combat the trichomoniasis disease that causes reproductive failure and considerable economic loss to Nevada ranchers. An ex post technology adoption model is estimated to examine the possible adoption rate, to identify the factors that may influence the adoption behavior, and to test how the probability of adoption for five possible adopter groups would change due to changes in various ranch specific factors. Results indicate that use of computers, veterinary checkup of herd, and herd size influence the probability of adoption. Model results show that cooperative extension programs enhance the rate of adoption.
