Located on the Adirondack Coast in Northern NY, The William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute is the present-day manifestation of the philosophy and principles once embodied by William Miner on Heart’s Delight Farm. Since its creation in 1951, the principal function is the economic improvement of agricultural operations through research, education, and demonstration. Miner Institute conducts research programs that apply basic science to contemporary problems confronting the dairy and equine industries. Our areas of focus include the crop-animal-environment interface, milk analysis as a herd management tool, cow comfort and behavior, and equine reproductive management.

Dairy Day is Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2021!
