Abundant natural rainfall and a great tradition of dairy farming makes the Northeast an important dairy-producing area of the country.

With the ongoing issues facing Oneida County Dairy Farmers, Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. led a forum on Dec 10, 2017 in which the county’s Dairy Farmer Sustainability Action Plan was reviewed by local dairy farmers at CCE Oneida County

After the extensive input dairy farmers provided after the first forum that took place in May, Picente presented the Oneida County Dairy Farmer Sustainability Action Plan in late August of 2018, and since that time, multiple items have or are in the process of being implemented.
