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.

Announcements

2017 Corn Silage Trial Information

Many of you have been looking for the 2017 corn silage trial information and preliminary results have been released. The predicted milk yields with the Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS) model will be completed in the coming weeks but wanted to supply you with this preliminary report now.

One reporting difference from last year is that the uNDF 240 is listed as a percent of NDF not of dry matter so the number is larger but the relationship the same: a lower uNDF 240 value indicates better performance.
