OPPORTUNITIES FOR RURAL YOUTH IN RURAL AREAS.
DOWLER, LLOYD
AGRIBUSINESS IS DEFINED AS THE SUM TOTAL OF ALL OPERATIONS INVOLVED IN THE MANUFACTURE AND DISTRIBUTION OF FARM SUPPLIES, PRODUCTION AGRICULTURE ON THE FARM, AND THE STORAGE, PROCESSING, AND DISTRIBUTION OF FARM COMMODITIES AND ITEMS MADE FROM THEM. WITHIN THESE THREE AREAS ARE SEEN MANY JOB OPPORTUNITIES FOR RURAL AND URBAN YOUTH HAVING COLLEGE DEGREES IN AGRICULTURE, HAVING JUNIOR COLLEGE OR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATIONS, AND EVEN FOR DROPOUTS FROM ANY LEVEL OF EDUCATION. HOWEVER, IN SPITE OF THE EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITIES IN AGRIBUSINESS FOR YOUTH WITH TRAINING, ONLY 10 TO 12 PER CENT OF THOSE WHO LEAVE THE FARM FOR A COLLEGE EDUCATION RETURN. EVEN SO, AGRICULTURE SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE U. S. HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO MEET THE MANPOWER DEMANDS IN THIS FIELD. PROGRAMS ARE NEEDED THAT WILL PROVIDE THE FUTURE TRAINING FOR OUR RURAL AND URBAN YOUTH AND PERMIT US TO CONTINUE TO LEAD ALL OTHER NATIONS OF THE WORLD IN THE PRODUCTION OF FOOD AND FIBER. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D. C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U. S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY. (SF)
