SALEM, Ore. -- A couple of local businesses are traveling to China with the Oregon Department of Agriculture to help to encourage trade and agricultural exports.

More than a dozen businesses statewide will travel to Shanghai, China, from May 12-17.

The Department of Agriculture says they want to strengthen the relationships with current buyers and connect with new ones.

Representatives from Harper Farms in Junction City and the Oregon Cattlemen's Association/K-bar Ranches in Myrtle Creek will be along for the trip.

The ODA said last year more than $290 million in Oregon food and agricultural products were shipped to China. The country is Oregon's fourth largest market for products behind Japan, South Korea and Canada.
