Brashear, Genefer L.; Hollis, Gilbert; Wheeler, Matthew B.
Journal of Extension, v38 n1 Feb 2000
A survey of 127 (of 300) Illinois swine producers found that 114 owned computers; the majority used industry magazines as sources of information about new technologies; extension newsletters were used much less by corporate farm enterprises; very small numbers used electronic mail; only about half used university specialists for information; and most relied on current technology users as information sources.
