Livestock production has seen abundant growth over the past 10 years. The land in our area is prime for grazing and making feeds for all forms of livestock. We work with livestock farms including beef, sheep, goat, hog, horse, and poultry producers. The size of non-dairy livestock farms can range from the back yard “hobby farm” to the small scale “diversified operation” all the way to the full time “main income” farm, and we’re happy to work with them all.
To remain competitive, dairy and livestock producers need to stay informed with the latest management information and adopt technologies that impact the productivity and profitability of their businesses. To meet these producers' needs, the Dairy and Livestock program conducts workshops, on-farm meetings, and discussions featuring speakers from Cornell University, GRAZE NY, agribusinesses, and local dairy and livestock producers. With a wide diversity of business structure, site, and management of our Chautauqua County dairy and livestock businesses, we have offered various programs to meet the needs of different owners, family members, and farm employees.
