Survey of Job Skills in the Beef Cattle Industry in the Uintah Basin.
Wood, Kirk J.
A study was conducted to identify the skills and training needs of Uintah Basin (Utah) beef cattle producers. A questionnaire form was mailed to a random sample of 210 beef producers. The questionnaire consisted of a list of 106 skills to be rated by the respondents. Two basic questions were asked about each skill: (1) How important is the skill to your operation? and (2) Do you need more training in this area? The findings indicated that all of the skills in harvesting, planting, and soil preparation were rated most important. Also, more than one-half of the respondents stated that training was needed in 45 of the 106 skills listed. (JH)
