Characterization of Cattle Farms for Rural Extension Work in Chunchi Canton, Chimborazo Province, Ecuador I: Determination of Main Heterogeneitie. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.2, pp.1-5. ISSN 2224-7920.

Eighty-two cattle farmers were surveyed to determine the main variables involved in cattle farm heterogeneity for rural extension work in Chunchi canton, Chimborazo province, Ecuador. The dimension reduction method suggested by Cabrera et al. (2004) was applied. Eight factors derived from the study: PCA (4), especially to variables investment in pastures and monthly milk income (F1); cattle fattening time (F2); total area (F3), and related farm members (F4). Concerning MCA (4), variables missing indispensable service and applicability of state of the art technology on the farm (D1); personnel in emergency situations (D2); breed or crossings (D3), and farm technology (D4)
