Finding a balance in foreign ag land purchases and government intervention

Missouri Governor Mike Parson told the State Cattlemen’s Convention limiting government intervention will remain a priority for the 2023 state session. Parson tells Brownfield it could be a balancing act as state lawmakers address foreign ag land bills in the legislature.

“I think we all want to encourage the American dream for anyone who wants to be a farmer and come here the right way, but I think what we’ve seen in today’s world, we do have to protect against foreign countries coming here for an alternative motive other than just farming,” says Parson.
