Cornell Cooperative Extension announces Fall 2023 Meat Processing and Marketing Workshop Series

This Fall, the Cornell Agricultural Marketing Research Program will offer workshops in 5 locations around Central and Western NY on meat processing and marketing topics. The series has been made possible through funding from the Northeast Risk Management Education program.
