Although "it takes money to make money" - not all expenses in your business create value.  On the other hand, underinvestment in your business, cutting costs that undermine the quality of your product or market, or that are detrimental to safety, your quality of life or your values can shoot you in the foot in the long run too.  Knowing how to assess where to cut expenses to enhance profitability is an art form.  Join CCE Central New York Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops Ag Business Educator, Nicole Tommell and NY FarmNet Business Specialist Gabe Gurley, for a one hour program Knowing Input Costs to Maximize Profits.

This program is the second of three Farm Business Management Tuesdays planned for this winter.  Join us on January 12th for Assessing and Using Credit in Your Agricultural Business and on January 26th for Cash Flow Management and the Annual Operating Cycle.

If you cannot make the live program, your registration fee also provides you a link to the recorded programs.

This series is supported by ag business management specialists from the following Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell University programs: the Capital Area Agriculture and Horticulture Program, the Central New York Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops Team, the Eastern NY Commercial Hort Program and NY FarmNet.

Announcements

U-Pick Farm Practices During Covid-19 Pandemic

U-Pick is a critical direct marketing approach for many of our farms and provides
customers with a unique connection to fresh produce grown close to home. In light
of what we understand about the spread of COVID-19, new management practices
will be needed to protect your farm team and your customers. This document
provides recommended practices and communication strategies for U-Pick
operations for the 2020 season.

Growers-are you running low on fall pumpkins, etc?

The Produce Auctions located around the state may have what you need.  Check out all of the opportunities here: https://harvestny.cce.cornell.edu/submission.php?id=4

Resources from CCE ENYCHP!

We are developing new ways to connect with the CCE ENYCHP team this year! We have a Youtube page located at this link. Check out videos on Table Grape Production, Pest Updates and the 20 Minute Ag Manager - in 4 Minutes series

We have a Facebook Page here as well as an Instagram page. We keep these places updated with current projects, events, and other interesting articles and deadlines.

There are also text alerts available. Fruit and vegetable farmers in 17 Eastern NY counties can now receive real time alerts on high risk disease and pest outbreaks texted directly to their cell phone. The Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture program, which is supported by local Cornell Cooperative Extension associations, will now offer text alerts to those that enroll in our program in 2019. 

The text alerts will be reserved for important crop alerts that could impact management decisions immediately. For instance, if there were an outbreak of Late Blight in the area, this would be transmitted to vegetable growers.

Farmers can choose the crop for which they wish to receive updates. Additionally they can request that Ag Business Alerts be sent to them. These alerts might include due dates for crop insurance deadlines, market opportunities etc.

If you have questions, please contact enychp@cornell.edu
