Agricultural Products consist of whole grains (for animal and human consumption) and commodities produced from these grains, food and beverage products, and sweeteners. Union Pacific is a key provider of transportation for these markets.

With access to most major grain markets, UP provides a critical link between the Midwest and western producing areas and the primary Pacific Northwest and Gulf ports, as well as Mexico. Union Pacific also serves the significant domestic markets.

Primary food commodities consist of a variety of fresh and frozen fruits, vegetables and dairy products, which are moved to major population centers for consumption. Frozen meat and poultry are also transported to the West Coast ports for export.
