(2010) suggests that with respect to implementing zoonotic control measures on cattle farms, financial incentives are not important motivators for farmers who currently have no intention to implement control measures (far left circle, Fig. 1). Instead they identified their private veterinary surgeon as their preferred motivator; extrinsic factors such as money did not appear relevant as long as intrinsic cognitive factors such as belief in self-efficacy and social responsibility were lacking.

It is vital at the outset to ascertain fully (in detail) the goals and ambitions of the farmer, which may often be very different to our own; it will avoid the considerable frustration that arises from attempting to motivate a farmer to make changes that are targeted in the context of achieving an end result about which he is simply not primarily concerned. However, whilst it is crucial to respect and understand the wishes of the farmer, practitioners may feel that diseases that carry the greatest welfare implications should be given the highest priority.

In this respect there are two points worth considering. First, we should be very encouraged because the farmer has reached the point of having high enough intentions that he has been prepared to try something. Secondly, we can now ask the farmer to describe in full how he found carrying out the task and what exactly the problems are, and as a result we have more precise information about the inconvenience of the task.
