Agricultural Production Manpower Report.
Amberson, Max L.; Bishop, Douglas D.
As one of a series of surveys constituting a statewide study in Montana, this report presents findings obtained from a survey conducted to determine the state of existing farm operations relative to employment practices and to delineate manpower needs of agribusiness. An analysis of the data collected from survey instruments distributed to agricultural producers on record in the Internal Revenue Service Office as having hired personnel in 1970 revealed that: (1) General farm workers are needed on both a seasonal and full-time basis; (2) More full-time workers will be required than seasonal laborers; (3) Business expansion, increased mechanization, and the loss of family labor account for the labor shift; (4) No specific educational requirement is needed to gain employment; and (5) The pay would range from $300 to $550. Recommendations and implications are included. Components of the study are available as VT 017 462-017 465 in this issue. (SN)
