Abstract: The paper uses structural equation modelling applied to survey data to test determinants’ influence on UK cattle farmers’ intentions towards Escherichia coli O157 control. Results suggest that farmers more likely to be willing to control Escherichia coli O157 are those who think that farmers are most responsible for controlling disease; whose income depends more on opening farms to public; with stronger disease control attitudes; who were affected by outbreaks; with better knowledge and more frequent information access; with stronger perceptions towards practicality of biosecurity measures; who use health plans; who think farmers are main beneficiaries of controlling disease; whose farm is dairy rather than beef.
