Yolo County Releases 2013 Crop Report

Yolo County Releases 2013 Crop Report

This week, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors received the 2013 Yolo County Agricultural Report – an annual report which summarizes the acreage, production and gross valuation of all agricultural commodities produced in Yolo County in 2013.  The total gross valuation for all agricultural commodities in 2013 was $721,636,091; an all-time high and an increase of 12.89% from 2012.

“These production figures reflect an overall higher price per unit for commodities and increases in acreage,” said Yolo County Agricultural Commissioner John Young.  “Field labor, processing, transporting, marketing and other farm-related services significantly multiply the value agriculture has to our county.”

Noted California zoo director dies while on a trip


SACRAMENTO (AP) - Officials say the executive director of a zoo in Northern California has died unexpectedly during a trip overseas.

Mary Healy, the executive director and chief executive officer of the Sacramento Zoo, died Thursday while traveling to the Galapagos Islands.

Zoo spokeswoman Tonja Candelaria said Saturday the 61-year-old Healy had left a port in Ecuador by ship when she suffered a cerebral aneurysm and was declared brain dead.

Candelaria says Healy was headed to the Galapagos Islands on business and vacation to see animals in the wild and their habitats. Healy's husband was traveling with her.

The widely respected Healy, who had been the Sacramento Zoo's director for nearly 15 years, also worked at zoos in Texas and South Carolina and at a Disney animal park in Florida.
