Well, make that five.  This sight is quite amazing…five bald eagles in one tree! The picture was taken on a farm near Chico, CA and demonstrates the close ties between agriculture and conservation.

HAT’S OFF TO AGRICULTURE

almond-bloom-w-truck-005-corrected-copyThe Port of Oakland’s export numbers jumped 10 percent since October 2015.  The primary contributing factor is an increase in agricultural shipments, specifically a 30 percent rise in exports of edible fruits and nuts.

The Port of Oakland has always had a more balanced mix of imports and exports.  Exports account for 52 percent of the port’s business with farm products contributing 40 percent of Oakland’s exports.

We are honored to be part of the process for our agricultural exporters.
