Agri-Business Banquet

Why Agri-Business?

The SAIF Corporation Agri-Business Banquet is a celebration of the agricultural community and its impact on the mid-Willamette Valley.

Oregon agricultural production is the second-largest economic driver in the state, with a direct economic impact of 10% of the state’s total sales and 7% of its value-added activity. Nearly 12% of all jobs in Oregon are connected to farming and ranching, and about 97% of those farms and ranches are family owned and operated. Many have been in the same family for at least 100 years. (Source: Oregon Farm Bureau)
