Oklahoma Farm Bureau members are encouraged to participate in an Oklahoma State University Extension survey to provide insight and help pave the road to recovery for Oklahomans following the COVID-19 pandemic.
OSU Extension specialists and researchers with the OSU Department of Agricultural Economics are conducting a survey of Oklahomans – including farmers and ranchers, agricultural companies and other business operators, and heads of households – to take the pulse of current opinions on the economy and comfort level with group meetings.
“Oklahoma officials at every level need to know what people think about perceived economic recovery challenges rather than relying on assumptions,” said Amy Hagerman, OSU Extension agricultural and food policy specialist.
By the end of May, more than 700 people had responded to the survey distributed by Extension county educators and cooperating partners around the state, Hagerman said. The ongoing survey is short, with most people being able to complete it in about five minutes.
Giving up a little time to participate will be well spent, given the potential impact on how dollars and personnel are invested to maximize information and assistance, Hagerman said.
The online survey is voluntary and open to all Oklahomans age 18 and older. All responses are anonymous. Respondents can read it before filling out the questionnaire, and additional comments are allowed at the end of the survey.
