Crops, Cows, and Critters
How Cornell Cooperative Extension's Regional Agriculture Program Approach is Supporting our Farming Community

The Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program (SWNYDLFC) is a new initiative that started in July 2019 as a partnership between Cornell University and the CCE Associations of the 5-county region that includes Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Steuben. SWNYDLFC Regional specialists work with Cornell Faculty and Extension Educators statewide to address the issues that impact the dairy, livestock, and field crops industries in New York through educational programming and events, consultations, and on-farm research.

Join Katelyn Walley-Stoll, Business Management Specialist, and Joshua Putman, Field Crops Specialist, as they discuss the program's efforts so far and their initiatives moving forward. This interactive presentation will highlight the agricultural industry, its needs and challenges, and tools Cornell Cooperative Extension can provide to help farmers feed the world.

This free program includes a cider making tour and tutorial !!
