The Sustainability Café on Monday, February 25th will feature Collin McCarthy from Spruce Haven Farm discussing “Milk, Butter, Ice Cream: An Introduction to Dairy Farming.” The Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM, in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar. The Spring 2013 Sustainability Café/Environmental Seminar series is focused on our local food system.
Collin McCarthy, who began working on dairy farms as a junior high schooler, has been the manager at Spruce Haven Farm since 2010. He was part of the 2008-09 Cornell Pro Dairy program-Northwest New York Dairy team. McCarthy graduated Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science and Dairy Management in 1995, and has since managed a number of dairies ranging in size from 65 to 1,600 cows.
