What is calcium and what does it do?
Calcium is a mineral found in many foods. The body needs calcium to maintain strong bones and to carry out many important functions. Almost all calcium is stored in bones and teeth, where it supports their structure and hardness.
The body also needs calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and every body part. In addition, calcium is used to help blood vessels move blood throughout the body and to help release hormones and enzymes that affect almost every function in the human body. Check out this link for more information on how much calcium you need:

New Self-Paced On-Farm Poultry Processing Course Available
Has your insurance provider told you they won’t underwrite your on-farm processing of poultry unless you complete a training? Do you need to brush up on best practices for processing meat birds on-farm?
Our new self-paced online course offers detailed videos and lessons on food safety and humane techniques for dispatching and processing chickens and turkeys on-farm under the 1000-bird exemption.
The On-Farm Poultry Processing course will take 3-4 hours to complete, and includes quizzes in each section to test your knowledge. You’ll have 3 attempts to score 80% or better on each quiz before you can move onto the next topic, and if you pass all of the quizzes, a “Certificate of Completion” will be automatically issued to you.
This certificate may be accepted by your insurer to underwrite your poultry operation, but we cannot guarantee that it will result in coverage. Please confirm with your insurance agent before registering, if your sole intent in taking the course is to obtain farm insurance.
As with all of our online courses, pricing is tiered based on household income and this course ranges from $49 – $99. This On-Farm Poultry Processing course was authored by Cornell Cooperative Extension educator and farmer, Lynn Bliven, from Allegany County.
This new self-paced course joins the Cornell Small Farms Program’s offering of more than 20 online courses to help farmers improve their technical and business skills. These courses cover a range of topics any farmer needs to succeed, such as farm business, soil health, indoor mushroom production, grazing management, and so much more. You can browse all of the course offerings on our website.

What is iron and what does it do?
Iron is a mineral that the body needs for growth and development. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles. Your body also needs iron to make some hormones. Check out the following link for more information on iron:
https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Iron-Consumer/

Iron helps make hemoglobin in red blood cells. Learn how much you need, good sources, deficiency symptoms, and health effects here.

Solicitation and Announcement
Master Forest Owner Volunteer Training

***Applications Due By April 6th***

Have you ever thought about using your knowledge and skill to help your neighbor woodland owners? Join the hundreds of woodland owners who have served their neighbors since 1994.

As a woodland owner you have a special set of skills that you could share with other woodland owners in your area. These skills are enhanced by educational resources available through Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell’s ForestConnect program. Learn how to merge your skills with existing resources so you can be a volunteer that helps other woodland owners more thoroughly enjoy and manage their property. You are invited to the annual training for Cornell’s Master Forest Owner (MFO) volunteers. MFO volunteers work through Cornell Cooperative Extension to visit woodland owners in their county and direct them towards resources that help them manage their woodlands. This training is open for new volunteers and previously trained volunteers seeking a refresher.

Applicants invited to participate will join in 7 weekly online sessions via Zoom, and subsequently meet in person in early to mid-June for a one-day field session at locations around the state. Online sessions are 6:30 – 7:30PM starting on Tuesday April 13 at 6:30PM, and occur each Tuesday through May 25. In addition to 2 orientation sessions, 5 technical content sessions provide participants increased knowledge about: woodland ecology and health, wildlife and habitat, interfering vegetation management, silviculture, and agroforestry. Participants should plan to allocate 3-4 hours per week to learn the technical content via guided online learning and spend an hour per week in a live interactive discussion session.

All woodland owners in NY are welcome. Owners interested in becoming a volunteer should start the process here . The fee is $35 per person and $50 per couple which includes the full training, and supplies and resources provided at the field session. Previously trained volunteers are also welcome at $18/person and $25/couple.

For consideration to participate in the training, follow these steps to be completed by April 6:
1. Complete registration application via the link above, and after reviewing other materials here.
2. Be alert to an email from your regional director to meet via Zoom after completing your application.
3. Payment made via a secure online link provided to you after you talk with your regional director.

Within 6 months of the training:
1. Have a visit on your property conducted by an existing MFO volunteer
2. Shadow a visit to a woodland owner in your area with a local MFO volunteer.

If you have any questions about the MFO program, you can learn more at www.CornellMFO.info or from Program Director Peter Smallidge at [email protected] or 607-592-3640.

The foods we eat are often influenced by our family’s history and culture, as well as where we live, our budgets, and our tastes. Many cultures use beans as a staple in their meals. Dried beans can often be cheaper, but canned can be quicker. Either way, beans are a great source of fiber and a welcomed ingredient to any meal. #nationalnutritionmonth #moneystightshopright #lifestighteatright #timestightplanright #snapedny

Trees for Tribs

Free Seedlings Available to Qualified Landowners for Streamside Plantings
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced that the application period for the Trees for Tribs' Buffer in a Bag Program is now open. Private and public landowners who qualify may apply for a free bag of 25 tree and shrub seedlings for planting near streams, rivers, or lakes to help stabilize banks, protect water quality, and improve wildlife habitat.
DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said, "The goal of the Buffer in a Bag program is to increase forested riparian buffers across the state by encouraging landowners to undertake small-scale plantings. Streamside plantings help decrease erosion, slow floodwaters, and protect fish and wildlife habitat. Every landowner participating in this program is bolstering DEC's efforts and our partners' work to protect water quality and safeguard our communities from flooding."
To qualify, landowners must have property in New York State with at least 50 feet that borders a stream, river, or lake, and provide photos or a map of the planting location. Previous recipients are encouraged to reapply to continue to build their riparian buffer. Applicants are eligible for one bag of 25 seedlings and recipients are chosen on a first-come, first-served basis. A total of 500 bags will be available statewide for this round of applications.
Landowners in the Hudson River Estuary watershed (PDF) may be eligible for additional assistance with streamside planting projects. For more details, visit the Hudson River Estuary Program's webpage.
Seedlings are provided by DEC's Colonel William F. Fox Memorial Saratoga Tree Nursery and the Trees for Tribs program is supported by the State's Environmental Protection Fund (EPF). Governor Cuomo's proposed 2021-22 Executive Budget includes sustained record funding for the EPF at $300 million.
Visit DEC's website for more information about the Buffer in a Bag application process and requirements. Applications are due by 3:00 p.m. on April 12. Contact [email protected] with questions and visit Trees for Tribs Program on DEC's website to learn more.
