Extension Avenue Use Among Small-Scale Goat Producers in Missouri and Arkansas
Catherine Hoegeman and
Journal of Food Distribution Research, 2017, vol. 48, issue 1
This study uses multivariate statistical procedures to explore extension avenues used by goat producers in Missouri and Arkansas. Use of an avenue is influenced by a number of factors including nature of issue, time, and scale of operation. The results show that professional avenues, which are deeply rooted in tradition and history, are the main outreach avenues, but the Internet is emerging as an important and increasingly utilized avenue by many goat producers. Demonstrational, family based, and specific client need based avenues are used less frequently.
