Agricultural Producers Manpower Report Manual.
Amberson, Max L.; Bishop, Douglas D.
One of a series of surveys conducted as part of a statewide study to assess educational and employment opportunities of rural populations in Montana, this report summarizes the procedures, conclusions, and recommendations involved in a study of agricultural producers in the State. In an effort to determine employment trends and ascertain occupational variables, questionnaires were used with a sample of 50 percent of the agricultural producers owning farms in the under 6,000 acre category and classified as operator or owner-operator, and 100 percent of those producers operating farms in excess of 6,000 acres. Of the 4,161 surveys mailed to Montana agricultural producers, 1,495 or 35.9 percent were returned. An analysis of data obtained resulted in a pool of information identifying a population of agricultural producers in the State from which a sample may be drawn to further identify job titles, job clusters, and job competencies.
