About Program

The Agriculture:
Agriculture is an important industry in Chenango, Fulton, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Otsego, Saratoga and Schoharie Counties.  The dairy, livestock and field crop industry represents over seventy percent of the agricultural product sold.  Because the land resources in the region are naturally suited for dairy and field crop production the potential for increased agricultural production exists.

The Team Mission:
The Central New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team was formed to work with this important industry. The mission of this extension team is to provide high quality educational programs that address the needs of dairy, livestock and field crop producers in Chenango, Fulton, Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery, Otsego, Saratoga and Schoharie Counties. The team consists of a Dairy Specialist, a Livestock Specialist and a Field Crop Specialist, working the eight-county region.





The Central New York Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops is supported,
in part, by eightcounty Cornell Cooperative Extensions including:
Chenango, Fulton, Herkimer,
Madison, Montgomery, Otsego,
Saratoga and Schoharie Counties.

Updated Meeting Guidelines

Effective June 1, 2021, the size limit for outdoor field meetings (including open-air, well ventilated barns) may be held up to 500 participants.

Effective June 11, 2021, the size limit for indoor meetings may be held up to 250 participants.  If the indoor event is held at a business, the business may implement other requirements for participants in accordance with NYS and CDC guidelines, which may include requiring proof of vaccination, separate individuals and designate part of the establishment based on vaccination status, and require masks/social distance for all patrons or just those unvaccinated.

For both types of meetings, masks are only required for unvaccinated attendees and they also need to maintain 6' social distance during the event.  Vaccination status is based on self-reporting.  Masks and hand sanitizer will be available for participants.  The NYS, CDC, and Cornell University guidelines will be monitored and we will adjust meeting guidance accordingly.
