From March 24-27, the Cornell Cooperative Extension will hold 2015 Spring Beef Week programs in Canton, Malone, Watertown and Westport, New York to help farmers better understand what beef buyers want and how to produce a consistent supply of cattle that meet their demand. Cattle prices are high, leading some farmers to wonder if beef could become part of their farm’s offerings. At the same time, existing beef producers want to know if there are things they can do to better capture and sustain a viable market into the future.
