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, a Farm Business Management Specialist, and a Field Crop Specialist, working the eight-county region.





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

Spotted Lanternfly

Lycorma delicatula, or Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), is an invasive plant hopper from Asia and is an agricultural pest. In the United States, it was first found in Pennsylvania in 2014. Spotted Lanternfly has been found in New York State on Staten Island, all New York City boroughs, Long Island, Port Jervis, Sloatsburg, Orangeburg, Ithaca, Binghamton, Middletown, Newburgh, Highland, and the Buffalo area. SLF threatens the agriculture and forestry industries, and is also a nuisance pest. The nymphs and adults feed on over 70 different plants, but is especially detrimental to grapes, a black walnut, hops, maple trees and apples. New York State Ag and Markets supported CCE efforts to help bring awareness to communities and we developed this Public Service Announcement and would appreciate you sharing it with your member lists.
