Abstract

In this series of three case scenarios, graduate and undergraduate students are presented with HR-based dilemmas at Blackfoot Farms, a fictional family business.

Family-owned and operated for four generations, Blackfoot Farms began with a herd of 15 cows and 225 chickens on roughly 100 acres of land five miles west of the town of Blackfoot, Idaho. Today, Blackfoot Farms is home to 2,000 cows and 3.5 million chickens. A case in three parts, the case examines the wide variety of issues that will likely be encountered in a changing business and economic environment.

Scenario A addresses communication and employee relations.
