About Program

Our North Country Regional Ag Program will provide science-based information and services to producers and agri-business professionals, equipping all with the knowledge to profitably produce and market safe and healthful dairy products and crops, contributing to the viability of New York State agriculture. Specifically, our North Country Regional Ag Program focuses on providing workshops and programs like the annual Crop Congress, Dairy Institute, Beef and Sheep Week workshops, and many others, where producers, consultants, and agribusiness representatives can find timely, relevant, science-based information on today's critical topics.



The North Country Regional Ag Team is supported, in part, by six
county Cornell Cooperative Extensions including: Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence,
Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties.

Announcements

Three Free Digester Workshops offered through CCE St. Lawrence Co.

CCE of St. Lawrence County is offering three FREE workshops showcasing the research results from our feasibility study of anaerobic digester technology on small farms. The research was conducted by our partners at Clarkson University using the anaerobic digester at the Extension Learning Farm, which is fed both manure from a dairy operation and vegetable waste from our commercial kitchen. The digester heats a small green house that starts our seedling plants. We have a small scale vegetable-only digester as well. The research and program targets small dairies under 200 head, livestock producers, horticulture producers and anyone interested in alternative energy.

Program will be held on December 5, January 7, and March 6. A catered meal is provided at each program. Participants within the North Country Region will be given a $25 stipend to help cover travel costs, those from outside the region will be given $50. To receive the stipend, participants will need to complete a pre/post-test survey.
