Web Design and Development

The inspiration for the look, layout and functionality of the Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops web site resulted from the creativity found at DSD Web Works. In addition, DSD Web Works custom built a complete user friendly content management system (CMS) which allows program staff to easily create and manipulate content. The administrative management back-end allows specialists to create informative abstracts or upload field trials, admins can upload information on new staff members, authorized personnel can add events to the events calendar or simply add an announcement. In addition, the backend helps to easily manage sponsors, event registrants and enrollees.

All content can be cross linked to multiple and relevant topics which allows for the site visitor to easily find relevant events and content.

The Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops was released in June of 2012 and upon release the reviews were "glowing".

2018 CCE Adirondack Summer Excursion

July 21, 2018
9:30 am - 6:30 pm
Utica, NY

The New York State Association of Agricultural County Agents (NYSACAA) is dedicated to providing members of Cornell Cooperative Extension community with continuing education, a voice on campus and ways to keep connected with each other. Regional, statewide and national meetings bring members together for professional improvement and social interaction. 

The board of directors has once again endorsed a summer social event to bring extension folks from across the state together this summer on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad
(http://www.adirondackrr.com/adkrr/). You do not have to be a NYSACAA member to join us! This excursion is open to all county, regional and campus employees and their families. It is unfortunate that there are county fairs in progress on that day, however this was the best choice for railroad operation purposes.
