POSTPONED

Due to Cornell University coronavirus policy

We regret to inform you that the Northeast Dairy Management Conference has been postponed.  As you are aware, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) continue to monitor an outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  Cornell University officials have been proactively working local and state public health organizations to monitor the concern and to protect the health and safety of our campus community and beyond.  Effective, Monday, March 9, Cornell University is postponing or cancelling large gatherings and events.  As a result of this policy, we must postpone next week’s Northeast Dairy Management Conference on March 11 -12, 2020 at the Holiday Inn in Liverpool, NY.
