DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- Oregon Department of Agriculture Director Alexis Taylor was scheduled to travel to Roseburg, Central Point and Medford Tuesday, Oct. 16.
According to the ODA, southern Oregon is well known for growing tree fruit such as pears, wine and grapes, but also raising cattle.
During the visit Taylor will speak with members of the Douglas County Livestock Association, the small farms program at Oregon State University Extension, farmers and vineyard owners.
Taylor's face-to-face meetings are part of her ongoing regional tour of the state that began earlier this year.
Douglas County ranks in the top 10 statewide for cattle, sheep and lambs.
