Determining Adult Agribusiness Training Needs. Final Report.
Ahrens, Donald L.; And Others
The prupose of the study was to: (1) identify the agribusiness firms within Wisconsin's Vocational-Technical and Adult Education (VTAE) District One, (2) identify the occupations of those employed in the industry, (3) identify present and future employment need for identified skills along with training needs for those currently employed in agribusiness occupations, and (4) integrate the data for program planning. Job titles were defined in each of 26 agribusiness categories and a total of 1,428 firms in the categories were randomly sampled to determine the current number of employees, vacancies, expected employment increases, training required for the job, and potential extension courses in business, animal science, crops, soils, and agriculture engineering. An agribusiness directory of 38 pages was compiled, giving the agribusiness industry, name, address, and telephone number of each employer by type of business. Summaries of survey data showing employment and educational training needs are presented in 17 tables. The survey instrument and other project data are appended. (MF)
