An Examination of Concerns of Albera Pork Producers

This document represents a report on the findings of the focus group meetings held in Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary, conducted by University of Alberta researchers. The method used to conduct these meetings was the Nominal Group Technique. There were similarities in the issues and concerns generated at the respective meetings but differences arose in their priority ratings. The Edmonton focus group stressed technical and business management concerns. The meeting held in Red Deer emphasized a communication gap between the parties generating research information and the Alberta pork producers. The Calgary focus group revealed problems with the reliability and timeliness of specific sources of information which are currently available to producers.
