farm management, farm researchers, researcher training
This paper discusses Loren Tauer's paper entitled "The Skills and Training Needed by Farm Management researches in the Future. "To discuss the skills and training needed in the future, the priorities identified for the future are to be specified to indicate the direction training may need to be focused. As noted English novelist-playwright and Nobel Prize winner John Galsworthy stated, “If you do not think about the future, you cannot have one. "Thus, this paper is a forward looking paper in that regard, thinking about the future so that we can focus on a direction. However, Alan Greenspan has pulled in the reins somewhat by stating, “Fundamentally the future is unknowable."
