Grimshaw Dairy is proud to host a farm tour focusing on calf care, cow comfort, and transition cow facilities as it related to a NY Farm Viability Institute grant project over the last two years. CCE Regional Dairy Specialists will go over results and benchmarks from assessments of these areas from all 15 farms involved in the study, and Grimshaws will share areas they've worked to improve related 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. 


Pizza and milk will be provided thanks to NYFVI grant funding.

* NON-VACCINATED ATTENDEES MUST WEAR A MASK AND SOCIALLY DISTANCE *

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
