Oregon Ag Stats

As you drive the back roads of Clatsop County and see all the pastures full of cows and sheep you might wonder how much money is generated by agriculture in our county and how does it stack up to the other counties in Oregon. You’ll find us third from the bottom.

Also there is a link below to the ODA report where you may see what is being produced in Oregon:

There is more profit to be made from dried salmon county landowners to either clear cut their property of all trees and then turning it into developable property. I mean is this area suited for agriculture? Is it the climate that we have here?

The farms I was lucky enough to grow up in the midst of, were owned by hard working Danes who seemed to be hard wired to keep dairy cows weather there was any money in it or not. Usually there wasn't. They all had second/third jobs. Truck driving, the plywood mill, gillnetting or logging. What an industrious bunch. Up at 5 for the AM milking off to a job at 7 or 8, home at 6, milk again. Haying in the summer, feeding the animals in the winter, caring for the sick ones, mending fences not to mention tending the gardens and orchards. Those families will always have my utmost respect.

Now see if they had counted in tree farms and the cash value for the perennial crop of Oregon purple bud grown in Clatsop county we could have made it into the top five.

Welcome to my job. :)

No, seriously, these numbers and what they mean for the state are a huge part of my job.

Jaggy, timber isn't in these stats, right? Cool job by the way. Thanks for doing it.

No, Mr. Guy, timber sales are not part of these stats. That falls under different legislation and rules.
