Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County provides diverse programming in the areas of Dairy and Livestock production. The main expertise of our staff is in dairy production management, but we also have access to resources and experts for other types of livestock.
In the area of dairy production, we offer resources and expertise in dairy nutrition, dairy facilities design, dairy housing ventilation system design and troubleshooting, production record analysis, general herd management. We utilize resources from Cornell University as well as other land grant agricultural colleges.
We typically offer programs throughout the year for farmers and local agribusiness personnel. These programs include both traditional classroom settings as well as on farm meetings and farm tours. Our Dairy News provides timely information on dairy production and general farm management. Those interested in other types of livestock may want to check out Livestock & Horticulture Farmer, a diverse livestock and horticulture publication available from our office.
