This study analyses the impact of a priori identified determinants of adoption of innovative animal health and welfare technologies by Scottish livestock farmers. The analysis uses a dataset of 1,764 observations for livestock farmers collected through a large scale survey of Scottish agricultural holdings, and structural equation modelling to test influences on technology adoption intentions and behaviour. Having made changes to business; perceived effects of technology and information on business; being recipient of a single farm payment; age; economic characteristics; access to/perceived usefulness of information; and perceived difficulty to change have significant influence on both technology adoption behaviour and intentions.
