Oregon Farmers Top Survey

A USDA survey has found that Oregon farmers are the most tech savy in the western part of the country.
The survey, that is conducted every two years, found that 79 percent of Oregon farmers are most likely to use a computer with their agriculture operations. When comparing farmers feel the computer is just as important as a tractor.
“We know that Oregon farmers and ranchers are savvy when it comes to technology,” says Katy Coba, Oregon Department of Agriculture director. “We have consistently ranked high among all states each time these computer surveys are done. What the latest results show, however, is that many other states are finally catching up to where we have been for the past few years.”
Close behind was Washington, Wyoming and Idaho. New Hampshire leads the country with 83 percent of farmers using computers.
