Transcripts are found with each farmer interview in this collection. The transcripts are not a verbatim account of the recording, but represent, as best they can, what was captured by the interpreter of the recording. The transcript is not a summary or opinion of the recording. There are two farmer interviews that have transcripts but no recording. This is becasue the recording technology was not working at the time of the interview resulting in the interviewer writing down the answers. These answers were then interpreted and written as the transcript.
