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.
