August 12, 25: Farm tours to showcase results of work done as part of NY Farm Viability grant project

Community Calendar

Cows on pasture at the University of Vermont dairy farm eat hay Thursday, July 23, 2020, in Burlington, Vt. When the coronavirus pandemic forced the University of Vermont to close and send its students home, the school worried about who would take care of the cows, normally tended to by students. In no time, dozens of alumni and students of a particular agriculture program clamored to spend their spring and summer caring for the Holsteins. (AP Photo/Lisa Rathke)

Riverside Dairy of Cincinnatus, New York and Grimshaw Dairy of Adams, New York are two of the fifteen farms involved with a NY Farm Viability grant project over the past year focusing on cow comfort, calf care, and transition cow facilities.

Both farms are proud to host tours where CCE Dairy Specialists will go over results and benchmarks from assessments of these areas from all 15 farms involved in the study. The farms will share areas they have worked to improve on their dairies- relating to calf barn facilities and management, as well as give a farm tour and answer questions about their value-added operation.  

The tour is free to all participants, but registration is required.
