Hire a lanlord/tenant lawyer.  This is a routine matter.  From the livestock comment you appear to be outside my service area -- No livestock in NYC.

The occupant must be served with a ten day notice of termination. Then you can commence a Holdover eviction proceeding.

Real Estate
Real estate attorneys can help individuals, families and small business with all property-related legal issues. Buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate should work with an attorney to negotiate the terms of agreement; draft and review the contract; review related paperwork (such as loan agreements); clear existing liens on a property; and attend the closing. Lawyers can also assist property owners with addressing zoning/rezoning issues and appealing property tax assessment. Landlords and tenants should work with real estate law firms to draft and review lease agreement, handle eviction proceedings and resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
