I see that Kyle Blanchfield is advertising that he wants to buy 2000 acres of CRP or wetlands in Benson or Pierce counties. I wonder how the farmers feel about competition coming from someone that is already making a profit from someone elses land? Will he drive up the price of other tracts like happened in western ND? Maybe Cootkiller can explain the economic advantage that this is going to bring to the area. :withstupid:

Sempter, just received word of two farm sales in Stutsman county, one at 520 acres, another at 1440 acres to nonresident hunters from Alabama and Colorado. Three more are pending. The gentleman from Colorado said "call me when the ducks come down". Of course any profit generated from the production on these farms now goes out of state. Is this the future of agriculture in North Dakota?

And where is Farm Bureau? Trying to sign up members for their suit against the tresspass law. This suit will only promote more commercial hunting if passed, and the resident ownership of North Dakota farms will suffer accordingly.

I have spoken with a few of the landowners in the area and was told that Kyle is no longer welcome on their land because of the same thing. Maybe he is shooting himself in the foot? :sniper:

There was two quarters by Hurricane Lake that was worth $200 tops/acre that went for $445/acre to a Winconsin group. Neighbors bid but not that high.

Dick, I would bet the Farm Bureau gave them their blessings. Maybe someday people will see what that group is interested in and it isn't always the welfare of the family farm. With the money that they have invested in South American crops/farms and comodities they could do more good here in our own part of the world. Eric Ausmansted cares for nothing except stirring up the pot and tucking tail and running! Not having the ba11s to defend his words or his actions.
