Watch a Webinar

Don?t give up on continuing education as spring arrives. Webinars bring knowledge right to your office.

Winter is ?meeting season? for dairy producers and crop farmers alike. Veterinary clinics and crop consultants host client meetings, NEDPA, Pro-Dairy and Cornell Cooperative Extension bring you many conferences and courses. By the time spring rolls around many farmers stop looking for educational opportunities and shift their focus to the fields.

Webinars (web based seminars) are a great way to continue learning, even when you?re too busy to leave the farm. As webinars take place year-round, presenters can offer information that is up to date and more relevant to what you?re doing in the field and on the farm today, not next season. Another added bonus is that most webinars are free!

While the location (your computer, smartphone or tablet) is certainly convenient, the timing can?t always fit with everyone?s schedules. Most websites that host webinars also archive them online so that you can watch them at your own convenience. If you want to watch the webinar live (in most cases gives you the chance to ask questions), some websites even offer reminder emails to let you know when the webinar starts.

Here are some upcoming webinars for you to take a look at:

  • April 16, 12:00pm-1:00pm: Prevention of Grain Fires & Dust Explosions

Resources for Managing Overtime

Beginning January 1, 2020, farm employers in New York will be required to pay overtime to certain employees for all hours worked over 60 in a week. We've developed some tools to help farm employers consider management strategies to respond to this change. Tools include an excel calculator to estimate the cost of overtime and an extension bulletin to help you consider and evaluate changes on your farm.
