Survey Says: What Farmers and Agri-Businesses Have to Say About Agriculture Lawyers


Rincker Law, PLLC conducted an online survey titled “Use of Lawyers for Agriculture Producers and Agri-Businesses” via Constant on June 8, 2013. There were 70 participants in the short survey over a four-day period advertised via social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Rincker Law, PLLC’s blog) and via email to New York Agri-Women, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s Young Producers’ Counsel, and selected agriculture clients. The results are interesting and tell a lot about what farmers and agri-businesses desire from agriculture law professionals. The survey was completely anonymous. I asked the participants eight simple questions. On each question, there was about one nonresponse. The participants were able to leave comments after each question. This article describes the data and lessons from the survey so that agriculture lawyers can better serve the community.
