A study presented by The American Farm Bureau Federation shows that 29% of American jobs are tied to food and agriculture. Even with the recent pandemic and changes to the world economy, the industry has remained resilient to provide Americans with jobs, economic opportunity, and safe food. The report’s findings show that 7% of the nation’s economy and 29% of American jobs are linked to the food and agriculture sectors, either directly or indirectly. Amidst the global supply chain and inflation crises, these sectors also exported $182.91 billion worth of goods, helping the U.S. maintain its position as a leading player in global agriculture. In 2021 these sectors contributed a total of $3.01 trillion to the U.S. economy. In helping to continue spurring this trend in America and around the world, the agricultural industry has seen significant advancements over the years due to innovations in hydraulic equipment. Hydraulic systems make agricultural production faster and more efficient, while reducing labor costs. And hydraulic power has resulted in several advantages for agricultural machinery, which in turn has increased efficiencies, ultimately increasing the quality and reduced costs of food products.
