Pilot Programs in Vocational Agriculture. Agribusiness Programs for People; Final Report of Wisconsin's 5 Years of Pilot Programs in Agriculture.
Thompson, John F.
The committee for Vocational Agriculture Pilot Programs in Wisconsin was appointed in 1967; this report analyzes the impact of five years of pilot programs on Wisconsin's vocational agriculture as a whole. During this period, the committee granted funding to 34 vocational agriculture departments in the State. A wide variety of programs were funded, each for a three-year period. The intent of the program was to develop new agribusiness experiences to complement well established production oriented programs. The four topic areas of this study are: (1) funded programs (2) applicants not funded (3) knowledge of teachers not connected with pilot programs (4) comparison of Wisconsin vocational-agriculture with that of four neighboring States--Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota.
