Getting started in dairy farming: a study of farm entry processes and experiences in New York State



Getting started in dairy farming: a study of farm entry processes and experiences in New York State



Publication, Department of Agricultural Economics, Cornell University (A.E.Research 83-36): v + 69



This study was undertaken to describe the various ways a recent group of farm entrants got their starts. Our purpose was not to describe how many started or how many new farmers began by each of several ways. Rather, the authors wanted to illustrate the wide variety of ways by which it's possible to get into dairy farming. Hence, our sample of 37 farmers was selected to show different means of starting and problems associated with their starts in farming. The authors felt their experiences would be helpful to others who want to start a farming business--both in terms of fitting the means for starting to individual circumstances and in terms of common problems beginning farmers face.
