Watertown, NY, Aug 16, 2012 — Governor Andrew Cuomo hosted a "yogurt summit'' Wednesday in Albany, to talk with farmers and manufacturers about ways the state can help boost New York's share of the growing trade. Making yogurt has become big business in upstate New York in recent years.
Those yogurt plants that are the focus of the summit are in western and central New York. But North Country dairy farmers would still benefit from growth in that industry. Jay Matteson is Jefferson County's agricultural coordinator. He told David Sommerstein the more dairy plants in the region, the better.
