Oklahoma Agriculture

Oklahoma’s impressive agricultural impact spreads far beyond the state line. Ranking fourth in the nation in number of farms, the Sooner State’s 78,000 farms cover 34.2 million acres of land, with the average farm sizing in at 438 acres. Hardworking farmers and ranchers grow and raise the state’s important commodities, such as hogs, cattle and calves, soybeans, winter wheat, rye, pecans, milk and more. Several of these commodities put Oklahoma on the map in national rankings, including No. 1 for rye, No. 2 for beef cows and winter wheat, and No. 4 for pecans.

Though Oklahoma provides food, fuel and fiber for the U.S., the state is extremely valuable in an international sense as well. In 2013, the total value of agricultural exports for the state was an estimated $1.9 billion. Wheat, beef and veal, pork, hides and skins, and chicken meat brought the most to Oklahoma’s economy. Prime export markets include Japan and other Asia-Pacific countries.
