THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FARM BUSINESS PLANNING AND ANALYSIS INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM FOR OHIO YOUNG FARMERS.
BOUCHER, LEON WILLIAM
IN A 3-YEAR ACTION RESEARCH PROJECT, IDEAS FOR A FARM BUSINESS INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM WERE IDENTIFIED BY A PILOT GROUP OF YOUNG FARMERS AND TEACHERS WHO CONDUCTED THE PROGRAM. AFTER 1 YEAR, THE PROGRAM WAS EVALUATED THROUGH QUESTIONNAIRES AND INTERVIEWS WITH TEACHERS, YOUNG FARMERS, AND AGRICULTURAL AGENCY PERSONNEL INVOLVED. SOME FINDINGS WERE--(1) THE INSTRUCTIONAL AREAS IDENTIFIED AS IMPORTANT IN FARM BUSINESS PLANNING AND ANALYSIS WERE FARM INVENTORY, FARM AND FAMILY GOALS, CROPPING SYSTEMS, LIVESTOCK SYSTEMS, LABOR, FINANCE, AND RECORDS, (2) THE AREAS, IN ORDER OF SATISFACTION IN TEACHING, WERE CROPS, GOALS, LIVESTOCK, FINANCE, LABOR, RECORDS, AND INVENTORY, (3) THE AREAS, IN ORDER OF DIFFICULTY IN TEACHING, WERE FINANCE, RECORDS, LABOR, LIVESTOCK, GOALS, CROPS, AND INVENTORY, (4) THE FARMERS RATED THE AREAS IN ORDER OF VALUE, TO THEM AS RECORDS, FINANCE, LIVESTOCK, CROPS, GOALS, LABOR, AND INVENTORY, (5) 90 PERCENT OF THE FARMERS INDICATED THAT WOMEN SHOULD BE ENROLLED IN THE INSTRUCTION WHILE 70 PERCENT OF THE PROGRAMS ACTUALLY ENROLLED FARM WIVES, (6) 75 PERCENT OF THE ENROLLEES INDICATED THAT THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY A COURSE FEE, AND (7) THE PROGRAM REQUIRED MORE ON-FARM INSTRUCTION THAN OTHER OHIO YOUNG AND ADULT FARMER PROGRAMS.
