182nd Annual Meeting and Agricultural Forum set for next month

ALBANY – The Department of Agriculture and Markets is again partnering with the New York State Agricultural Society to co-sponsor the Society’s 182nd Annual Meeting and Annual Forum.  This is one of the largest agricultural meetings in the state, bringing together all sectors of the food system to explore topics critical to the future of New York agriculture.  More than 400 participants are expected to attend the event, which will take place on January 9, 2014 at the Holiday Inn, 441 Electronics Parkway, Liverpool, NY. 

“The Department of Agriculture and Markets is proud to partner with the New York State Agricultural Society to bring stakeholders together to listen and learn about the future of our state’s robust agricultural sector,” said Acting State Agriculture Commissioner James Bays.  “This event has a storied tradition dating back 182 years and we look forward to carrying on that tradition next year in Liverpool.”

“The upcoming Forum focuses on the Next Generation of Agriculturists,” said Penny Heritage, Publicity Coordinator for the NYS Agricultural Society. “We will hear from a national expert on leadership and farm business management, and from a panel of young farmers and agribusiness persons, sharing perspectives on their future in New York agriculture.”

All are invited to the New York State Agricultural Society’s Agricultural Forum and special pre-forum events.  Early registration is strongly encouraged, and discount applies for Forum registrations received before December 20th.  For complete meeting details, visit:
