Economic Impact of Stall Stocking Density

Economic Impact of Stall Stocking Density

At the Cow Comfort Conference, hosted by your North Country Regional Ag Team, in Syracuse this March 2017, Dr. Albert De Vries, University of Florida, spoke on the economics of cow comfort. While overstocking can improve economic returns on investments in facilities, it can have negative impacts on the cow, so how much can you overstock before you reduce your profitability? The optimal stocking density will vary from farm to farm, and within farm under different circumstances. Dr. De Vries highlighted some key things to consider to get a better idea of what overcrowding might be costing you.

Taking Back Control of Your Business

Kelsey O'Shea, Agriculture Business Development
North Country Regional Ag Team

Last Modified: December 28, 2016

During times of low commodity prices, bad weather, and (insert your personal dilemma here) it can feel like everything is out of your control. That feeling invades every aspect of your life, it creeps and lingers into your farm's day to day operations and can be toxic to making progress. It's just as daunting though to try to make changes when your environment won't seem to cooperate long enough to give you time to think, about and implement those changes. I'm suggesting a simple 3 step process to help focus energies and efforts at a time when it can be difficult to even get each day's tasks completed.

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
