Topics to be discussed include maintaining land value for agricultural production, the purchase of farm machinery, raising livestock, including beef, sheep, goat, poultry, and swine, planning and production of fruits, vegetables and managing greenhouse operations.

Cost of the workshop will be $15 per person per session. Anyone interested must pre-register no later than the morning of March 27. For more information or to register please call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County at 963-7286.
