A series of free discussion meetings for dairy farmers — lunch included! — will take place from 11 AM to 2 PM between March 19 and April 1 at the New York farm sites listed below. These meetings are great for beginners and an excellent place for farmers who are considering organic production to ask questions.
Titled “Lunch with Jerry,” these discussions will honor the late Jerry Brunetti. Fay Benson, organic dairy extension educator at the Cornell Cooperative Extension, will show video trainings produced by Jerry Brunetti for the NY Organic Dairy Initiative.
To register for a lunch discussion at any of the sites below, please contact Ellen Fagan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607-753-5078, or visit http://scnydfc.cce.cornell.edu. Lunch will be provided.
