Abstract or Summary
  • Today education stands between all men and all work. What this means in specific off-farm agricultural occupations is the object of this study. Advanced technology and education have helped to develop modern agriculture so that one farmer can now produce enough food for his family and 30 other persons. To achieve this level of production the producer is supported by a large group of personnel who service, process and distribute the products of the farm. There are more jobs in off-farm agricultural occupations today than there are on the farm. The purpose of this study is to identify and study the off-farm agricultural occupations in Yamhill County. Information for this study was obtained through a mailed questionraire and through personal interviews with persons qualified to provide the desired information about the occupations and the employees. A survey of firms in Yamhill County reveals that a large number have employees needing agricultural backgrounds. Most offfarm agricultural job opportunities are in semi-skilled categories. None are in unskilled categories. There will continue to be an increased demand for workers in off-farm occupations. The majority of the job opportunities require at least a high school education. Over one-half the employers were willing to cooperate with the school districts in work experience programs for students. A general knowledge of rural life is essential for offfarm agricultural workers. Based on the findings of this study, production agriculture should continue to be the core of instruction for vocational agriculture. The vocational agriculture program should be enriched and expanded to include specialized training for off-farm occupations. The Future Farmers of America organization should continue to be a strong and integral part of the vocational agriculture program.
