Teen Interested in Ag Career Shows at New York State Fair

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — For Erin Curtis, a sophomore at SUNY Cobleskill, showing at the New York State Fair is a regular part of her summer.

State Fair butter sculpture gets recycled into energy

Eight hundred pounds of butter have been on display for 18 days. Now, volunteers from Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners are helping it serve another purpose. “From an environment perspective, dairy farmers are the original environmentalists,” said Chris Noble, vice president of Noblehurst Farms. “We want to make sure we are using as many resources as we can, between making the milk, but also relying on whatever is left over to create energy and power the whole process.”
