Announcements

Do's and Don'ts for Barn Snow Removal

The recent Western New York lake effect snow storms have dumped feet of snow causing many barns to be in danger of failure. The forecasted rain events for the next few days, along with warming temperatures will increase the weight of the current snow on barn roofs, thus further increasing the risk of barn failure.

Removal of significant snow accumulations off of a barn roof is best performed in a systematic way to reduce the risk of injury or death to both barn occupants and those working on the roof. Removing roof snow without a proper approach may actually cause more damage than if left alone in some cases by creating an unbalanced and/or concentrated roof loads. Read more and view drawings on how to safely and effectively remove snow from a barn roof.

Erie County Snowfall - Contact Us to Report Damage

The Cornell Vegetable Program is working with Erie County Cornell Cooperative Extension to report damage caused by the record snowfall in Western New York this week to NYS Ag & Markets, Federal lawmakers, Cornell University's EDEN staff, and New York Farm Bureau. All of these organizations are working together to coordinate an effective response for the agricultural industry. The National Guard has been mobilized in the Buffalo area, but Farm Bureau has been told the current primary responsibility is the health and safety of the citizens. Much of the effort is clearing roads for emergency services and health care workers. As soon as those are met, the focus will turn to other immediate needs, including agricultural priorities.

Report your snowfall damage to Darcy Telenko so that we can forward the information to the appropriate response organization. 

In an emergency, your first call should be to 9-1-1. If you need any non-emergency assistance, please contact New York Farm Bureau at 1-800-342-4143. New York Farm Bureau can connect you to the appropriate state services who may be able to help.
