Perceived risk of introduction of an animal disease in their herd
Respect for the law
Lack of relationship
Sanitary and economical factors
The typology of interviewed farmers was based on two considerations: their perception of risk and their attitude towards abortion notification. They were scored on these two considerations as negative or positive, i.e. low versus high perceived risk of introducing an animal disease into their herd, and low versus high rate of abortion notification. On the basis of these two considerations, four groups of farmers were identified, being especially influenced by incentives, health and economic factors, practical difficulties, or poor integration in socio-technical networks respectively.
