CNY Dairy and Field Crops Team Annual Report

Extension provides programming to help meet challenges to the dairy industry

2015 has been a very challenging year economically for dairy producers because of the severe downturn in milk prices. The milk supply in the Northeast is more than adequate and some farms have had the challenges of finding a market for their milk. Interest and capital available for herd expansions is certainly much lower than in 2014 when there were record high milk prices. The Central New York Dairy and Field Crops Team strives to provide educational programming that helps dairy farms meet their business and personal goals even in these difficult times

The Central New York Dairy and Field Crops Team Reported on the following:

  • Dairy Acceleration Program (DAP)
  • Bringing along the next generation of cow
  • Improving soil health from cover crops and no-till
  • Small grain resurgence
  • Winter Dairy Management Schools
