Farmers usually have great plans on what they want to do with their operations.
But sometimes, things don't go according to plan. Disasters and challenges can put a knot into the stomach of most farmers and a hole in the financial bottom line.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County in collaboration with Oswego County Soil and Water, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the United States Department Of Agriculture Farm Service Agency is sponsoring a workshop for agriculture producers on how each of these agencies can assist them when everything doesn’t go to plan.
The four agriculture agencies that serve the farmers and residents in Oswego County will be together in one place from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26 at the Oswego County Federal Credit Union Community Room, 5828 Scenic Ave, Mexico, 13114.
The day is geared toward beginning and experienced farmers alike who are looking for information on how to improve or expand their agriculture businesses. Federal and NYS programs will be discussed including some cost share programs.
The goal is to improve the awareness of agriculture agencies that are available to address the challenges faced by agriculture producers in Oswego County There is no cost to attend but registration for lunch and to let us know if you have special needs is appreciated by noon on Tuesday, Feb. 25 by calling Brenda at 963-7286, ext. 201.
