1 I regon Agricultural Commodities Farm Values and Processed Values H Extension Service and Agricultural Experiment Station, Oregon State University

2 Our cover: For this edition, we feature Oregon green snap beans the fresh beans that leave the farmer's gate and the bags of frozen beans that customers find in markets. Oregon ranks second in the U. S. in the production of green snap beans, and almost all of it is processed (page 15).

3 Oregon Agricultural Commodities: Farm Values and Processed Values S.D. Miles Cash sales from Oregon farms and ranches were $2.0 billion in Total cash farm receipts have shown dramatic increases current sales are about double the values of 10 years ago. These figures need to be tempered by the fact that prices paid by farmers and inflation in our economy also have nearly doubled in this period. These increased dollar values are derived primarily from increases in crop sales. In 1987, crops accounted for 66% of total sales; in 1971, this figure was 53%. You'll find the proportional increases in each commodity grouping's summary table, which appears first in each section. The importance of agriculture in Oregon's economy is dramatized by the farm sales value, which is now $2 billion annually. In addition, estimates show $1.05 billion value added to farm products by first handlers in processing and/or handling. While the term "value added" is used in this report, the dollar figures received from the processors include purchased items such as packaging materials, fuel used in transportation, etc. The component figures presented here do not represent values all the way through the marketing chain (these are not estimates of wholesale or retail values). The data for this report come from a combination of sources. The "farm gate" values are figures the OSU Extension Service gathers each year in cooperation with the Oregon Agricultural Statistics Service. "Farm gate" means the dollars farmers and ranchers receive for the sale of raw commodities from their operations. With these cash receipts, operators must pay their operating expenses, family living expenses, etc. OSU's Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics conducted a survey to gather dollar values for processing and handling of agricultural commodities. Survey forms were sent to processors and handlers. The form asked for data on the costs for payroll, packaging materials, and other expenses for each commodity. Data from this survey are summarized by commodity throughout the following pages. The value added by processing and handling varies greatly from one commodity to another. Fruits and vegetables tend to be more highly processed compared with wheat, which is mostly transported to Portland for the export market. Fruits, nuts, and vegetables together accounted for 3 /i of the value added by processing and handling for all crops and livestock products. The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics has published reports concerning value added information at 4- to 5-year intervals. Summary tables compare the current survey results with those of previous reports. Stanley D. Miles, Extension economist, Oregon State University. This publication is a revision of Special Report 533.

8 Meat animals Receipts from the sale of meat animals for 1987 were $390 million, an increase of about 121 % from Cattle and calves are by far the most significant in farm sales value of all the livestock categories, with receipts of $340 million. Sheep and hogs each accounted for $20 to $25 million. Handling and processing values beyond the farm gate for meat animals are relatively small. Value added ($33 million) is proportionally less than for most other commodity groupings, because many beef animals are shipped out of state for feeding prior to slaughter. The meatpacking and marketing business has seen significant change in the last 10 to 15 years. Oregon now brings in from other states a larger proportion of its fresh and processed meats. In 1987, Oregon meatpacking plants slaughtered about one-fourth the pounds of meat animals they handled in The cattle and calf business continues to be one of Oregon's most significant agricultural enterprises primarily because of the state's vast range resources, but sheep and hog numbers have trended downward. One of the drawbacks to feeding cattle and hogs in the state is the lack of local feed grain production. Cattle feeding in Oregon is closely linked with the supply of byproduct feeds from the agricultural processing industry in the state. Sheep slaughter in Oregon in 1987 was about 3% of the state's total production of sheep and lambs. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by 1,000. Total received by producers for all meat animals $389,951 Total value added through packing and delivery in Oregon 33,164 Total received by producers plus value added through packing and delivery in Oregon $423,115 Received by producers Cattle and calves $340,000 Sheep and lambs 25,000 Hogs 24,951 Total received by producers $389,951 Received by producers for livestock slaughtered in Oregon (value/cwt; live weight x lbs. slaughtered) Cattle($57.80 x 61,637,000) $ 35,626 Calves($76.00 x 2,959,000) 2,249 Sheep and lambs ($70.95 x 82,200) 583 Hogs($53.20 X 42,126,000) 22,411 Total received by producers for slaughtered livestock... $ 60,869 Value added through packing and processing 8 Payroll $ 6,587 Packing materials 4,613 Other 6,668 Total value added through packing and delivery $ 17,868 Value added through transportation and handling of livestock not slaughtered Labor $ 5,048 Other 10,248 Value added in transportation and handling $ 15,296 "Value-added estimates are based on calculations in 1986 Annual Financial Review of the Meal Packing Industry, published by the American Meat Institute.

Cash receipts to dairy farmers now total about $183 million: 60% of the milk is sold as fluid product, and 40% is processed into cheese, butter, ice cream, etc. The number of dairy cows had shown a downward trend over the years, from more than 200,000 in 1945 to slightly more than 90,000 head in Milk production has been fairly constant because of increased production per cow. With new technology and increases in prices paid by all farmers, production costs have shown substantial increases in the dairy business. Given the changing technology, efficiencies are being achieved in the processing and handling of milk and milk products. Because of this, processing costs (even with inflation) have shown only a gradual increase. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by 1,000.

Broiler production is second, with farm sales of $22 million. The poultry and egg business in Oregon now generates $87 million annually in processed products, an increase of more than 90% since While turkey hatching-egg production has dropped off significantly, other types of poultry production have shown stability or gradual growth trends. The poultry and egg industry is characterized by relatively large specialized operations. This sector has taken advantage of efficiencies and economies of size that have resulted in lower-cost products for consumers. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by 1,

12 Fruits and nuts In 1987, growers received about $193 million for their fruit and nut crops. The total value added to these products from processing, packing, and other first-step marketing services was just over $248 million, a 130% increase over the farm-gate value. The total value of Oregon processed fruit and nut products in 1987 was more than $441 million, a 200% increase over The Oregon fruit and nut industry has become very specialized with production concentrated in specific areas. Pears, the largest total-dollarvolume fruit crop, are produced primarily in the Medford and Hood River areas. Some additional pear production comes from the Willamette Valley area. The second highest totaldollar-volume crop is cherries. They are produced for processing in the Willamette Valley and The Dalles. Cherries for fresh market are produced primarily in the Milton- Freewater area. The Dalles, Hood River, and Cove. Strawberries, which rank third, are grown primarily in the Willamette Valley. Fourth-ranked in 1987 was Hazelnuts (filberts) with farm sales of nuts at $20.6 million. The sales of these nuts have grown dramatically from $7.8 million in The fifth ranked fruit and nut crop, by total dollar volume, is apples. Production is spread around the state, with the Hood River area being the most specialized. The wine grape business is becoming a more significant part of agriculture. While these grapes had only a $4.7 million farm gate value, value added was $21.1 million. This is one of the highest valueadded commodities in this survey. Other top value added commodities have experienced increases in their valueadded percentages in the last few years. Pears had a value added by processing and packing of 215% in Prunes have a dramatic value added ratio of 3.5 times farm gate values. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by 1,

15 Vegetables Oregon has a good reputation for producing high quality vegetables for both fresh and processed markets. A very large portion of most crops is processed. Oregon ranks second nationally in the production of snap beans, fourth in sween corn, and fifth in potatoes. Vegetable production has increased over the past 20 years, and Oregon's share of the processed vegetable market has been maintained. In 1987, growers received a total of almost $263 million for their vegetables. Total value added in processing and handling was about $468 million, a 178% increase in value above the farm-gate level. With the exception of onions, which are mostly sold fresh, the vegetable crops in 1987 had value added in processing and handling well over 100% of the farm-gate value. Most of the commodities had similar percentage increases compared to the 1983 period. The exceptions were green peas, cucumbers, and beets. In the case of green peas, the value added from processing was $29.7 million, a 340% increase over the grower value. The value added to cucumbers by processing and handling was 322% above farm value in That compared to a 206% increase in In 1987, the farm value for cucumbers was $4.9 million, while value added was $15.8 million. Of special interest are beets. In the period, about 400% was added to the grower value of beets in processing operations. The growers' value was about $2 million, while the value added was about $7.9 million. By 1987, that increase was approaching 700%. The grower value was just over $2.0 million. At the same time, the value added from processing had increased to over $14.8 million. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by

In recent years, production has been 50 to 60 million bushels, with over 85% being exported. Hay is the second most valuable crop, but of the three million tons produced, only about 930,000 tons are sold. The rest of the hay is fed on the farms and ranches where it is produced. Cash receipts from hay and grain sales for 1987 were $249 million, a 34% decrease since The decrease comes mainly from lower wheat prices. (These dollar values do not include government payments, which were significant for wheat in 1987.) Other crops in this grouping include barley (which has shown declining acreage in the last 15 years), oats, and smaller acreage of rye and corn for grain and silage. Oregon is not known for its feed grain and silage production. Value added to the crops in this section comes primarily from transportation and handling... although there is some wheat milling and forage processing (pellets and cubes) in the state. The percentage increases in value added have changed dramatically over recent years. Production is much greater and value added costs have increased proportionally more than crop prices. Also, the value added estimate for wheat for 1987 includes transportation to the Port of Portland for the amount exported. More of the hay for sale in recent years has been produced in concentrated areas and hauled longer distances. For example, some of the hay grown in Hermiston is trucked to Tillamook. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by 1,000.

This category has shown significant and steady gains over the last 10 years. Grass and legume seed crops now generate $170 million in farm sales annually. Nursery and greenhouse production has shown dramatic increases in the last few years, primarily in the northern Willamette Valley. Farm value is now over $200 million and increasing. The value of timber cut on farms and small woodlots also is increasing with improved management techniques and higher prices. Mint production had been increasing because of recently higher prices to the point of generating farm value of $40 million in Oregon produces more than 50% of the peppermint oil in the United States.

Miscellaneous livestock Although the amount of wool sold in Oregon in 1987 was down about 15% from 1983, a somewhat higher price more than compensated and returned a few more dollars to sheep producers. In light of the continuing decline in Oregon sheep numbers, the relative constancy of the wool crop size implies higher per-head wool weights and improved marketing of the crop. The value of Oregon's 1987 mink sales was substantially higher than the 1983 average, a result of both a larger number of pelts sold and a higher price to growers. The value of farm and ranch sales of Oregon horses alone in 1987 was twice what the total value of "other livestock and livestock products" was for the period (which included horses). While the estimates are not very precise, llama sales make up most of the other miscellaneous livestock figures. Central Oregon (Redmond area) has become the primary area for production and expertise for Hams in the United States. In the tables that follow, multiply all dollar amounts by 1,
