O. O. Ozer, H. Akcay
Abstract: In this study, it is aimed to present the relations between the socio-economic characteristics and the main information needs of the owners of the stock enterprises in Aegean region-Turkey. The data obtained from the survey is evaluated with the Non-Linear Canonical Correlation Analysis. It is determined that the variables discussed are the factors that cause the main differences between the enterprises engaged in the stock-farming activity. Accordingly, it is determined that the age of the producers having young stock-animal is 31-45 and these are the low- and middle-income producers; the producers use their own experience as the main information need about the stock farming and they consult the veterinary surgeons and zoo technicians about the feed ratio. Furthermore, the majority of these enterprises state that they consult the veterinary surgeons in case of need. When evaluated in general, it can easily be said that the producers using information needs make more profitable production from the young animals in the stock-farming activities.
