2017 Cascade Grains Conference

The Cascadia Grains Conference held in Olympia, WA brought together farmers, processors and end‐users, as well as investors, brokers and local government officials to support rebuilding a grain economy west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia through three value-added enterprises – brewing and distilling, baking and other food uses, and animal feed. Professor Larry Lev participated in a panel discussion that examined the economics of different alternatives for organizing supply chains to make this happen. The conference was presented by Washington State University in partnership with Oregon State University.
