The NWNY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team is one of the outstanding regional agricultural Cornell Cooperative Extension programs in New York, serving a 9-county region in the western part of the state. The team's specialists work together with Cornell faculty and extension educators statewide to provide service to the farms large and small whether dairy, livestock, hay, corn, wheat or soybean focused.
The team is part of the Cornell College of Agriculture & Life Sciences' Pro-Dairy program outreach. Educational programs and individual assistance cover a wide area of best management practices and as well as dairy farm business. For dairy farms, a bilingual dairy specialist provides producers with employee training and human resources facilitation in Spanish. Educational and support venues range from on individual farm management team meetings and troubleshooting to multi-day classroom and hands-on training and from ongoing farmer group discussion meetings to thematic day long symposia.
The Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops is supported, in part, by county Cornell Cooperative Extensions including: Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties.
