WNY Livestock Summit

March 31, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Calling experienced livestock producers: We know you face tremendous challenges to grow your business. What are the undeveloped opportunities and how can we collectively address them? 

SAVE THE DATE: Cornell University’s Small Farms Program and Cornell Cooperative Extension are partnering to host the NYS Livestock Summit on March 30, 2017 from 1-4 pm at 8 locations throughout the state.

Our aim is to prioritize needs to grow the livestock sector in NY.  The target audience for the Summit is the experienced producer (beef, swine, sheep, goat, poultry) and supporting agencies/industries.
