About Program

The Agriculture:
Agriculture is an important industry in Chenango, Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Otsego, Saratoga and Schoharie Counties.  The dairy 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 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 and field crop producers in Chenango, Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Otsego, Saratoga and Schoharie Counties. The team consists of a Dairy Specialist and a Field Crop Specialist, working the seven-county region.





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

2017 First Cutting Forage Quality Project

The CNY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team has begun monitoring hay fields for our First Cutting Forage Quality Project. If you aren't familiar there is a very good correlation between alfalfa height and the level of Neutral Detergent Fiber in not only alfalfa but also grasses.

The team monitors fields throughout our region in May to give forage producers some idea of the optimal time to harvest that important 1st cutting. When to start varies as much as 2 weeks in our region depending where you are, elevation and soil type. Check out the Forage Quality section of our website for more information.
