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

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is spreading rapidly across the world.

Although cities have the most sick people, the disease has reached rural communities of New York as well. Everyone needs to take this very seriously. Agriculture is an essential business, so many of us will continue to go to work. However, we all need to take precautions to stay safe and help prevent further spread of the disease. The key things to do are limit contact with other people and keep everything very clean. We've prepared a new resource to help Spanish- and English-speaking farm employees access credible, multi-lingual information that they can use right away. Here are this links to a printable resource for farms to use:
English COVID 19 Procedures
Spanish COVID 19 Procedures
