CANTON -- The Cornell Cooperative Extension, 2043B State Highway 68, will host a Northern New York Spring Beef Week program March 21 at 7 p.m.

Beef industry representatives and educators will share the latest practices for designing cattle handling and the use of artificial insemination.

There will be presentations by Cornell University Beef Extension specialist Dr. Mike Baker, local extension educators and farmers who are using artificial insemination with their cattle.

The presentation on handling equipment will give producers many ideas on how to set up a handling facility, which components should be the priority, and how to encourage the cattle to use the facilities.

Farmers interested in a visit by Dr. Baker may contact their Extension office to schedule.
