SADDLE HORSE AND OTHER LIVESTOCK ADVISORS' PERCEPTIONS OF 4-H CLUB WORK IN OHIO.
GROVES, ROBERT H.
PERCEPTIONS AND UNDERSTANDINGS OF 4-H OBJECTIVES AND PROGRAMS OF 4-H SADDLE HORSE ADVISORS WERE COMPARED WITH THOSE OF OTHER LIVESTOCK ADVISORS IN NORTHEASTERN AND SOUTHWESTERN DISTRICTS OF OHIO. DATA WERE COLLECTED BY QUESTIONNAIRES FROM 90 SADDLE HORSE AND 133 OTHER LIVESTOCK ADVISORS. STATE 4-H STAFF AND SUPERVISORS PROVIDED CORRECT ANSWERS. THE TWO GROUPS OF ADVISORS DIFFERED IN SUCH PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS AS TENURE AS ADVISOR, SEX, FORMER 4-H EXPERIENCE, AND OCCUPATIONAL STATUS. NO DIFFERENCE EXISTED IN FORMAL EDUCATION, SIZE OF CLUB, OR LEVEL OF ANNUAL INCOME OF CLUB FAMILIES. THERE WAS HIGH AGREEMENT AMONG THE ADVISORS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TEN NATIONAL 4-H OBJECTIVES, AND IN THEIR ATTITUDES REGARDING CLUB PHILOSOPHY AND MEMBER GROWTH. DISAGREEMENT EXISTED ON ATTITUDES REGARDING LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, CLUB ORGANIZATION, PLANNING, ACTIVITIES, AND PROJECT WORK. BOTH GROUPS DISAGREED WITH STATE AND STAFF SUPERVISORS ON SUCH PROGRAM ASPECTS AS IMPORTANCE OF THE COUNTY FAIR AND MEMBER EXHIBITION. IT WAS FELT THAT SADDLE HORSE PROJECTS RECEIVED LESS ASSISTANCE FROM STATE AND COUNTY EXTENSION STAFFS, BUT BOTH GROUPS INDICATED THEY RECEIVED ADEQUATE ASSISTANCE, AND WERE SATISFIED WITH THEIR POSITIONS AS 4-H ADVISORS. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE GIVEN FOR TRAINING OF SADDLE HORSE AND OTHER LIVESTOCK ADVISORS. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES DATA TABLES. (PT)
