Dairy farmers from across Otsego, Delaware and Sullivan counties will convene at the Center for Agricultural Development & Entrepreneurship (CADE) in Oneonta this Monday December 9th.

The goal is to map out ways local farmers can increase the price for their milk and halt the rapid decline of farming in the region. The meeting is the next step in a project to reach out to local dairy farmers and identify new markets in view of the local food movement and despite the specific industry challenges that exist to bring local milk from the local farm to the local supermarket.

CADE has surveyed over 100 farmers from Delaware, Sullivan and Otsego counties and met with local processors, haulers and feed companies. At Monday’s meeting, CADE will present its analysis of the data collected and offer creative solutions to give dairy farmers leverage in emerging markets and an opportunity to negotiate a fair price.

The report will be the foundation of a critical discussion to determine what direction Catskill-area dairy farmers want to go in order to sustain their family farms. The meeting will be held at the CADE offices: Upstairs
, 5 Elm Street, Oneonta, from 12 Noon until 2 pm.
