(MISSOURINET)  –  One Missouri lawmaker is looking to prevent foreign ownership of farmland. This after lawmakers voted nearly ten years ago to allow up to 1% ownership. Senate-elect Rusty Black of Chillicothe says…

Following that 2013 vote, a Chinese company purchased Smithfield Foods, the largest pig and pork producer in the world. Black says Missouri doesn’t want world agricultural research and firms being a part of the Missouri environment.
