Evaluation of the Farm Training Program in Wisconsin. Final Report.
Fox Valley Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education District, Appleton, WI.
The final report presents the findings of an evaluation project set up to obtain reactions to the farm training program in Wisconsin from trainees and instructors. Two hundred and fifty farmers were selected for personal interviews on their respective farms. Each interview session lasted approximately 50 minutes. Data were obtained from the instructors by use of survey questionnaires and from open meetings. Some of the major recommendations based on the findings were: (1) Many on-the-farm jobs could be taught to groups of three to five farmers instead of individually; (2) the farm training program could be extended beyond the five years by offering special classes in each district taught by specialists; (3) more mechanics should be offered in the regular farm program; (4) a crash program in every district and at State level should be developed to update instructors in the skills they need in order to have a quality program.
