Dawson, Marilyn Gardipee; Krogstad, Roland
Designed to provide performance objectives and performance guides associated with current occupational information relating to the job content farm business manager, this Vocational-Technical Education Consortium of States (V-TECS) catalog lists eighty-two competences performed by farm business managers in the areas of obtaining and/or disposing of farm enterprises; managing and supervising the labor supply; managing crop, livestock, and machinery and equipment programs; managing farm buildings; managing the finances and taxes of the farm business; and performing general administrative services. (These competencies were derived from a search of job-based information provided in technical manuals, certification requirements, and other germane literature and from surveys of incumbent workers and supervisors.) Listed under each competence are (1) a performance objective which includes the conditions under which students will perform the objective, the performance required of the student after instruction has taken place, and a job-relevant standard for measuring successful performance of the objective; (2) a list of necessary tools and equipment; and (3) a performance guide or list of procedural steps identified as subordinate to task performance. (Appendixes contain a brief list of references and a cross-reference table of duties, competences, and performance objectives.) (MN)
