FAMILY GOALS AND SOME FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENT.
JOHNSTON, RUPERT BERNARD
GOALS OF FARM FAMILIES WERE ANALYZED AND FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENT STUDIED. DATA ON FARM GOALS, FARM AND HOME RESOURCES, AND INCOME WERE OBTAINED FROM 112 FAMILIES IN 18 MISSISSIPPI COUNTIES, IN WHICH THERE WERE THREE DIFFERENT COUNTY EXTENSION STAFFING PLANS. GOALS WERE CLASSIFIED IN GOUPS SUCH AS HOME AND GROUNDS, HOME FURNISHINGS, FAMILY LIVING, FARM LIVING, FARM MANAGEMENT, PRODUCTION PRACTICES, FARM BUILDINGS AND FENCES, FARM EQUIPMENT, AND LAND RECLAMATION. GOALS RELATED TO THE HOME AND FAMILY LIVING ACCOUNTED FOR 44 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL, AND WERE PREVALENT AMONG FAMILIES WHERE THERE WERE BOTH MEN AND WOMEN EXTENSION AGENTS WORKING WITH THEM. GOALS RELATED TO THE FARM ACCOUNTED FOR 56 PERCENT OF ALL GOALS AND ALMOST HALF OF THESE WERE FARM MANAGEMENT. AMONG IMPLICATIONS WERE (1) EXTENSION WORKERS SHOULD BE COGNIZANT OF THE NATURE OF FAMILY GOALS WITH RESPECT TO BOTH TIME AND COST, (2) THE SHORT-RUN AND LONG-RUN IMPLICATIONS OF FARM FAMILY GOALS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IN MAKING FARM AND HOME PLANS, AND (3) AGE OF THE FARMER, EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT, AND NUMBER AND AGE OF CHILDREN, INFLUENCE THE PRIORITIES OF GIVEN GOALS.
