Project Leaders: D. A. Rutz, Entomology, Cornell University, and J. K. Waldron, NYS IPM, Cornell University
Abstract: Arthropod pests can significantly impact animal health and net profitability of cattle production. Extension outreach of IPM approaches and techniques have been tremendously instrumental in enhancing producer awareness of pest management alternatives. Keeping outreach sourced with state of the art information, resources and approaches helps ensure the greatest potential educational impact. Developing the specimen boxes and demonstration kits has positively impacted the effectiveness of our outreach efforts.
