Grain, particularly wheat, is a top-five export for the state of Oregon, where Port of Coos Bay is poised to serve growing demand across the Pacific Northwest.
More than 85% of Oregon-grown wheat is exported, and grain vessel loading activity out of the Pacific Northwest continues to be strong. In a recent USDA report, wheat production worldwide is expected to grow to new records in 2021-22.
In this Grain Talk episode, Margaret Barber, director of external affairs and business development, discusses the port's facilities, including a rail line, and goals for growth in the grain export market.
