Starting a Livestock Farm Workshop Series

Wednesday, February 24, 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm

There are many aspects to consider when starting a livestock farm, such as land, what to sell, and how to sell it. Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Specialists Nancy Glazier and Joan Sinclair Petzen are offering a beginning farmer educational series. The two sessions will cover resource assessment, business planning, basic bookkeeping, and budgeting. Time will be available each evening for discussion. Follow-up sessions will be held biweekly if enough interest. The goal of the workshops is to provide livestock farms the right tools to get started. The cost of the workshops is $20 per person or farm couple. Pre-registration for the first session is required by February 17, 2021. Register at: or by contacting Brandie Waite at (585) 343-3040 x138. For workshop questions please call Nancy Glazier at (585) 315-7746 or email
