Why is it important?

The use of a new technology clearly implies that successful adopters achieve a net benefit, but non-adopters will face reduced profitability, and some will exit as a result.


We believe the model we used in this work can be useful to assess other issues on dairy systems and help policymakers to better understand unexpected or undesired outcomes of policy implementation.
