Chenango dairy farms on rise

NORWICH The number of dairy farms in Chenango County is on the rise for the second consecutive year, which is good news in an area where agriculture remains the leading industry.



According to the Chenango Cornell Cooperative Extension, the number of dairy farms increased in from 213 in January, 2011 to 219 by the end of December. It wasnt a huge gain, but its a gain, said Cooperative Extension Director Ken Smith. If we look at the trend of dairy farms in Chenango County, its contrary to what we would expect. It went up last year and its going up again this year ... Im hoping well see another net gain by the end of the year.
