The data source was a survey carried out in 2010-2011 in three provinces in a group of agricultural producers involved in the production of animals for slaughter. Majority of the agricultural producers declared the desire to acquire information. The larger the scale of production, the information needs were greater and the sources of obtaining it changed. In particular, the role of objective information obtained from local sources, and information services has increased. The data indicate that the producers had little knowledge about the functioning of the market, and competitive markets.
