Stocker Course now offered in Cayuga County

Southern Tier Stocker Initiative Short Course – New Site Added

Another site for the Stocker Short Course has been located at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Office in Auburn (Cayuga County). The only hitch is that we need a minimum of 10 registered for the Cayuga site to be a go.

Now set as a series, the first set begins July 29, 2017 and runs on the last Saturday of every month from 10 am-2 pm through October 28, 2017.  The syllabus can be found at PR-Revised_July 5. Another set will be scheduled starting in January 2018, again, the last Saturday. A live session will be held in the Belmont (Allegany County) NY, with current remote locations set for Chautauqua, Jefferson and Delaware Counties.  Other sites will be added as the local area shows interest. I know a few have already expressed interest in having a site in Ithaca, we are working on that, I just wanted to get the new schedule and cost out to you ASAP.   Cost is $100/person and $50/person from same family or farm. Fee includes lunch and all materials.
