Abstract

A presente pesquisa teve por objetivo diagnosticar o grau de qualificação tecnológica dos produtores de leite filiados à Cooperativa Mista Agropecuária de Patos de Minas Ltda. (COOPATOS). Quanto a metodologia, trata-se de uma pesquisa de campo, de natureza descritiva e quantitativa, cujos dados foram coletados por meio de um questionário semi-estruturado aplicado à uma amostra de 105 cooperados. Os dados foram tabulados e processados utilizando-se o software SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) e a análise foi efetuada com base em técnicas de estatística descritiva (distribuição de feqüência e média). Efetuou-se também uma pesquisa documental na Cooperativa com o propósito de complementar os dados obtidos. Considerando-se os estratos dos produtores de leite pesquisados, identificou-se heterogeneidade na utilização dos componentes tecnológicos (melhoramento genético, alimentação, reprodução, sanidade do rebanho e máquinas e equipamentos). Com base nos resultados obtidos e, com a finalidade de melhorar a qualificação tecnológica dos produtores de leite, faz-se as seguintes recomendações à COOPATOS: que estruture um programa de treinamento sistemático de cooperados, filhos e funcionários que contemple a capacitação e difusão de tecnologias de produção de leite e; que intensifique entre os cooperados a assistência técnica oferecida pelos técnicos da Cooperativa. -------------------------------------------------The present paper aims to diagnose the degree of technologic qualification of the dairy farmers affiliate to the Cooperativa Mista Agropecuária de Patos de Minas Ltda.
