Registration:   Deadline July 18

Ashley McFarland, CNYDLFC Livestock Specialist will be the speaker. Youth and adults are welcome to attend.

Traveling around Central New York we see more and more beef operations developing. We are hoping to share ideas and improve the communications between these farmers. The current cattle market has been rising over the past few months, and the futures are looking to continue to increase. Some issues we hope to address are:
  • Where can we market this year's calves? 
  • What helped you get through the low prices? 
  • How are you finishing your animals? 

To register, contact the Cornell Cooperative Extension office in Herkimer at (315) 866-7920 or email herkimer@cornell.edu

Please let us know the number of people attending.
