Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County (CCE) will be hosting a Dairy Robotics, Graze Way System and Windmill tour at the Trinder Farm in Fabius, NY. Start time is 10 am and will include a few different tours of the farm. Punctuality is very appreciated to accommodate the various farm tours. Trinder Farms is a certified organic dairy farm in Fabius, NY that is milking 120 head of Holstein cows with 2 robotic milkers. They also utilize a Graze Way system in their intensive dairy grazing system. There are only 3 dairies in New York State that are implementing both systems.
