FarmOps Livestock Production

 Registration is closed for this event

Are you a veteran who is interested in or has started livestock farming? Consider joining the Cornell Cooperative Extension Capital Area Agriculture and Horticulture Program for Farm Ops! 

In this program we’ll explore what you need to get started in livestock production. This class includes a free copy of the book The New Livestock Farmer, by Rebecca Thistlewaite, a great resource on a broad spectrum of livestock species and their care and production. 

This workshop will be conducted in-person at CCE Albany County, 24 Martin Road, Voorheesville, NY 12186 on March 16, 2022, from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Current CDC COVID-19 protocols will be observed.

Lunch, refreshments, and materials are included in the workshop. Please visit http://www.newvillagedeli.com/ and take a look at the menu. Select what you'd like to have for lunch and let us know first thing on the day of the event and we will order it for you!
