Grower Workshop Anticipated for February 2022

The Oregon Wheat Commission postponed the Grower Workshop in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions preventing access to many facilities. The tour is traditionally held in February and is expected to return in February 2022.

“This educational tour is for our growers to further their knowledge of the supply chain. We want to ensure we can provide the high-quality experience our growers deserve. We are excited for the workshop to return in 2022," said OWC CEO Amanda Hoey.

The workshop features a variety of tours, including the Wheat Marketing Center, Shaver Transportation, a wheat foods manufacturing facility, and a local grain export facility. Participants are provided updates on OSU wheat research, highlights from U.S. Wheat Associates and more. The workshop provides an opportunity for growers to see firsthand the shipping, grading, product development and customer relations including topics like Supply & Demand, transportation issues, Sanitary/Phyto-Sanitary issues and global conditions affecting the price of wheat. Contact OWC at projectadmin@oregonwheat.org or (503) 467-2161 if you are interested in participating in an upcoming workshop.
