SCIPIO CENTER and HOMER, N.Y. — These trainings are supported by a grant from the New York Farm Viability Institute.
Cornell Ag Workforce Development and the South Central NY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops team are offering a series of hands-on regional training workshops from 1:00 to 4:00 PM at two locations on August 23 and 24.
“Growing Great People: Training Skills for Dairy Farmers” will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm on August 23 in Scipio Center and from 1 pm to 4 pm on August 24 in Homer. The same workshop will be offered both days, so choose the date and location that work best for you. We encourage farms to send multiple employees. Anyone who is involved in training other employees can benefit from the workshop!
Presenters Dr. Richard Stup from Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development and Dr. Kaitlyn Lutz from the CCE NWNY Team will deliver the training in English and Spanish. Participants will learn skills to plan and conduct effective trainings for dairy workers and immediately put them to practice during the workshop through hands-on activities. All attendees will receive a bilingual, illustrated handbook to take home.
Cost is $20 per person and includes lunch. Bring a standard operating procedure (SOP) from your farm. Register online at nwnyteam.cce.cornell.edu/events.php or call Donette Griffith at: 607-391-2662.
