Program ends at 2:30pm, but there is an opportunity to stay longer and get more practice with the Dystocia Model.

Knowing the stages of labor and recognizing when a cow needs assistance are important skills. This workshop will educate attendees on those skills and will include a hands-on experience with a life size model of a cow ready to calve along with her calf. Attendees will be able to practice a variety of dystocia situations.  

Topic at Each Station:

  • Delivering the Calf with the Dystocia Model
  • Stages of Labor & Using the Calving Tools
  • Neonatal Management
  • Postpartum Cow Care 

Registration is limited to 8 Spanish speaking attendees.  English speaking waiting list is also available.

Dave Balbian is Retiring

I have decided that it's time to retire. I find myself at a point in time where I'm now beginning to work with the 3rd generation of people on the farms in our region. It's time to bring in some new young blood into the team. June 28th will be my last official day on the job. I've enjoyed working with you all. The real satisfaction I've had with my work has been seeing producers take my advice and then be successful with it as they moved their business and family forward. 

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.
