Katelyn Walley-Stoll

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program is excited to welcome Katelyn Walley-Stoll as the Business Management Specialist with the newly formed Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program with Cornell Cooperative Extension.

Walley-Stoll will be working on programming related to financial management, business summaries, production economics, business planning, and market analysis while also working to identify the needs of the region. You can reach her by emailing kaw249@cornell.edu or by calling 716-640-0522.

Walley-Stoll grew up on a dairy farm in Walton, NY that is still operated by her family. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science and Agribusiness Management from Cornell University and her Master’s Degree in Adult Learning from SUNY Empire State College. She has previously worked for CCE-Chautauqua as the Farm Business Management Educator since 2014 where she developed programs to assist local farmers, including the LEAF (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop series.

She operates Stoll Family Farm along with her husband and three young sons in Cattaraugus, NY where they raise diversified livestock and field crops. In her free time, she has a large garden and writes for the blog site “Her View From Home” on topics related to motherhood, mental health, and raising a family on a farm.

She is looking forward to bringing personalized business management assistance to farms in the Southwest New York region and continuing to connect the agricultural industry to Cornell resources.

The Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program is the newest Cornell Cooperative Extension regional program and covers Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Steuben counties. The Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops regional specialists work with Cornell faculty and Extension educators to address the issues that impact the agricultural industry in New York by offering educational programming and research-based information to agricultural producers, growers, and agribusinesses in the Southwestern New York Region.

Katelyn Walley-Stoll will be joined by three additional specialists that will cover Dairy Management, Field Crops Production, and Livestock Management.
