Bovine Reproduction and A.I. Training Course
1:00 AM - 1:00 AM

  While proper artificial insemination technique is important in any farm’s reproductive program, understanding the cow’s anatomy and physiology is also essential.  In this two-day class, participants will learn the biology of bovine reproduction, giving them a better understanding of the whole reproductive system.  Hands-on practice with cows will teach them proper insemination technique.  The training will consist of both classroom sessions and hands-on practice.  Over the last week of September, Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Northwest New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team will offer two classes, one in Ontario County and one in Wyoming County. 

Monday September 26 and Tuesday September 27

Willow Bend Farm, 1159 County Road 7 Shortsville, NY

Taught in English

9:30am- 3:30pm

 Thursday September 29 & Friday September 30

HY- Hope Farms, 5908 Horseshoe Lake Rd., Stafford, NY

Taught in Spanish

9:30am- 3:30pm  

Over the course of two days, students will learn the basics of bovine reproduction.  The course will offer as much hands-on practice as possible, but it’s important to note that this is a beginner’s course meant to teach the basics of artificial insemination.  Participants should expect to practice inseminating cows on a regular basis in order to become proficient.

Jonna Egli and Abraham Cohen of Genex Cooperative, Inc. will teach the class. 

$175 registration for enrollees of the NWNY Team. $225 for non-enrollees*.  Materials & lunches included both days.  Classes will be capped at 15 people per site. 

To register for either class, please contact Zachary Amey (585-786-2251) or register online at: 

For questions contact Libby Eiholzer (607-793-4847) or Jerry Bertoldo (585-281-6816).

Seneca Falls Farmers Market
9:00 AM - 1:30 PM
Seneca Falls Farmers' Market
Wednesdays from 9AM-1:30PM at People's Park in Seneca Falls
Come and see how much your local market has grown!  We are not wrapping vendors around the gazebo!  Come down to People's Park in Seneca Falls tomorrow (Wednesday, July 6th) for the  Seneca Farmers Market.  Support local businesses and local agriculture!  We'll be there 9AM to 1:30PM for you to buy fresh produce and other great local items like honey, maple syrup, eggs, maple flavored popcorn, baked goods, grass fed beef, free range chicken, plants, jams and jellies and handmade items. 
One of our newer vendors is NY Nitro Coffee, the first to bring nitro coffee to the Finger Lakes region. Nitro coffee takes cold brew coffee a step further by putting it into a keg, infusing it with nitrogen, and serving it through a nitro tap like beer. The result is a naturally sweet and creamy coffee drink that looks identical to Guiness Stout when poured with cascading bubbles and a frothy head. It is calorie-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and vegan-friendly. Nitro coffee is served ice-cold and customers can enjoy the arabica flavor straight out of the tap or may add a flavor shot from an assortment of choices, including caramel, hazelnut, & vanilla bean.  Sounds perfect for a hot day!
Great, local, just picked produce including berries, summer squash, beans, peas, cucumbers, tomatoes and much more.  Baked goods include homemade breads, sticky buns, whoopie pies, cupcakes (gluten free too!) and muffins. Come and meet the people who grow the food you buy!
If you're hungry, come enjoy a meal in the shade at the picnic tables in the park.  Uncle Chunkies and Tastes of Wine Country will be serving lunch throughout the market day.  Come and enjoy a Hoffman hot, hamburger or sausage and some mac salad and a cold drink or a fresh sandwich on whole grain bread with side salads.
Besides the abundance of fresh, just picked veggies and fruits don't forget about the handmade jewelry, vintage lavender filled linens, Watkins products, plants in pretty pots, and many other baked goods.  Many of your old favorite vendors will be there as well so come and see what new things they have grown or made for this season.
And tomorrow a representative from the Office for the Aging will be in the park to start giving out senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons!  That's right, if you are a resident of Seneca County, 60 or over and meet the income guidelines (which are very generous so come down and check it out) you will receive a free $20 worth of coupons to spend on local fruits and vegetables!  And if there are two people in the same household, for the first time this year BOTH people can get $20. 
Come and use your EBT card and buy anything the vendors are selling that is food stamp eligible.  The FreshConnect Program is back this season!  For every $5 of SNAP benefits a person uses, they will receive a $2 coupon to use at the market on any food stamp eligible items.  So if you use $10 of your food stamps you will receive $4 Free!  Stretch your food dollars with local foods! 
Please pass this email along to your friends, family or coworkers who might be interested. As well, be sure to "Like" our page on Facebook where we'll add weekly updates, trivia, news, and upcoming arrivals. Our Facebook page is located at:
You can also find more information about the Farmers Market on our new website at where you'll soon be able to view vendor profiles, recipes, market photos, and much more.
Come and see all the new vendors we've added this season and visit with the regular vendors you've come to know over the past few seasons.  
The market would not be possible without the support of the Seneca Falls Development Corporation and the Town of Seneca Falls.  Thank you to them for helping support local products and businesses!
See you in the Park!
(We will only email you once a week as a reminder to shop the market but please reply to this email to opt out of the update.)

Former Cuban Diplomat Visits HWS
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This fall, Carlos Alzugaray Treto, former ambassador of Cuba to the European Union, will visit the Hobart and William Smith campus to discuss the recently reestablished diplomatic relationship between the U.S. and Cuba, and the international implications of that agreement.

"Ambassador Alzugaray Treto's visit gives us an invaluable opportunity to engage in dialogue with a distinguished Cuban diplomat and scholar who is also an expert in Cuba-U.S. relations," says Juan Liébana, associate professor of Spanish & Hispanic Studies. "In light of the current national interest in Cuba and the approaching end of the embargo, and in the context of our recently approved program to send the first group of HWS students to study in Havana next summer, this event could not be more timely for our community."

On Wednesday, Sept. 28, Alzugaray Treto will deliver a lecture, "Normalization of Relations between Cuba and the United States: the Return of Diplomacy," at 7 p.m. in the Vandervort Room in Scandling Campus Center. A reception, sponsored by the Office of the President, will follow the lecture.

Born in Havana in 1943, Alzugaray Treto is currently a member of the Cuban Union of Writers and Artists, an independent international affairs analyst and an advisor for New Cuban Consulting, a business consultant firm. His long career as a public servant, educator, author and international affairs expert has taken him across the globe, as a member of the Cuban Foreign Service, a professor of international relations at several Cuban institutions, and an editor and member of the Advisory Council of the Cuban social science and humanities journal Temas.

In the Foreign Service, Alzugaray Treto served in Cuban embassies and consulates in Japan, Bulgaria, Argentina, Canada, Ethiopia and Belgium. From 1992 to 1994 he was Advisor to the Cuban Foreign Minister on Global Political Affairs and from 1994 to 1996 served as Ambassador, Chief of Mission to the European Union.

As an educator, Alzugaray Treto achieved the rank of profesor titular in 1999 and has been honored with the annual title of National Distinguished Professor (five times) and Researcher (on one occasion). He has taught in Cuba at the following institutions: Higher Institute of International Affairs (where he also served as Vice Dean, Head of Department and Coordinator of Strategic Studies); University of Havana (where he is still consultant for the Center for Caribbean Studies and the Center for Hemispheric & United States Studies); the National Defense College; and the Academy of the Armed Forces.

The author of three books and more than 100 articles, essays and book chapters, Alzugaray Treto has been honored in Cuba by the Critics' Prize for best non-fiction book (2000) and the Casa de las Américas literary prize (in 2001 and again in 2013).

Alzugaray Treto has been visiting professor or research fellow at institutions across the North America and Europe and in Japan. He holds undergraduate, master's and doctoral degrees in history and international relations from Havana University, and has studied at Sophia University's International Division in Tokyo, Japan.

He was a member of the Cuban Academy of Sciences between 2000 and 2012 and a member of the executive committee of the Latin American Political Science Association between 2002 and 2010. He is currently a member of the International Studies Association and the Latin American Studies Association, at which he is a member of the Executive Committee of the Cuba Section.

Alzugaray Treto's campus visit is made possible by the offices of the President and Provost, the departments of Latin American Studies and Spanish & Hispanic Studies, and the Young Memorial Trust Fund, whose core mission is "to support activities at the Colleges that seek to foster international trust, understanding, and peaceful relations among the nations and peoples of the world."
