Dairy Forage Options for Marginally Drained Land~ Cooperstown

January 27, 2020


The winter of 2019 pointed out the risk of growing alfalfa on somewhat poorly and poorly drained soils as stands were killed in many instances. But as competition for land increases these wetter fields may be the ones that are readily available for rent or purchase. This workshop will be an informal discussion of what you can do to make the most of these less than ideally drained fields.

Presenters:
Joe Lawrence, Dairy Forage Systems Specialist, PRO-DAIRY, Cornell
Amy Langner, Resource Soil Scientist, NRCS, Marcy, NY

Agenda
  • Assessing your soil's crop capabilities
  • Tile and soil health as options to improve crop growth and reduce risk
  • What crops that are appropriate for my land resources?
  • The concept of Core Acres
  • Alternative management strategies
    • Timing of planting
    • Tillage
    • Manure spreading
The full list of meetings are:
  • Monday, January 27, 2020 at Farm Credit East, 7397 State Route 80, Cooperstown, NY 13329
  • Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at CCE Chenango County Office, 99 N Broad St, Norwich, NY 13815

The USDA National Scrapie Eradication Program Needs Our Help!

The USDA is currently seeking producers to let them sample mature sheep, 14 months of age to 6 years of age, for scrapie disease at slaughter or when an animal is found dead, euthanized, or slaughtered on the farm. The sampling involves taking the obex (brain stem) and a lymph node from the head. The USDA needs to increase the number of samples to maintain a minimum number so New York State remains in "consistent status". If New York State does not reach this minimum there will be severe consequences for our state. As an incentive to producers, the USDA is offering free scrapie tags to producers who have at least one eligible sheep sample. If you can provide such sampling opportunities, please contact Shelley Vitela: Shelley Vitela, Animal Health Technician, New York, Phone: 607-201-8962 Email: Shelley.R.Vitela@usda.gov 500 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205
