Livestock

LivestockBeef cattle, sheep and goats are well suited to North Country farms and families due to the abundance of grass for hay and pasture, a cool weather growing season and ease of access to quality water. Livestock numbers have increased over 14% in the past 10 years suggesting they are occupying some of those farms that aren't as suitable to the intensive cropping required by modern dairies. Northern New York Livestock producers work together along with Cornell Cooperative Extension to improve their management and market their products locally and statewide.
