Sickening. As a countey we no longer have any cultural values or morals that connect us to each other. It's every man for himself and what's good for me ideology. Everything, everyone, and every inch of this country is for sale to the highest bidder.

I lived in Saudi Arabia. I don't know of anything they would be feeding hay to. All food is imported so no feed lots. There is nothing but sand BUT that sand would grow anything if you put water on it. All the drinking water comes from a desalination plant. The camels wander around town loose.
Did you see where the AZ AG said she is putting a stop to it

i hope they can and i wonder how they found out about that deal . that was a real gaffe
i do not understand usaselling farm land or related to other countries like smithfield , its our wonderrful congress botth parties.
As an Arizona resident/horse person. I can tell you it's hurting those of us who have to buy our hay. But more importantly, it's killing our water supply. Add that this huge influx of California refugees escaping their crap politics and I don't recognize this state anymore. The traffic in Tucson and Phoenix is madness. The homes are popping up everywhere even over land that was once protected. Make it stop.
Add to that the huge influx of illegal migrants. It's predicted that after Title 42 is obliterated by the Biden administration there will be 14,000 per day.
Guess whose resources they're absorbing compliments of U.S. taxpayers. Everything we pay out the nose for, they get free of charge.
That is interesting.
it was at least 10 years ago that a hay company in TX told me it's getting harder and harder to purchase alfalfa, because of the Saudi's buying it all up - it was so hard to compete wiith their "purchasing power" -- also interesting is that they don't buy G M O hay.
Haven't heard of this though...growing their own?

they can not its illegal
Right thank you, I must've been rushed at work when I first replied....they don't buy G M O hay (other products) because it is illegal in several countries - why not here in US - it needs to be illegal.
Forgive my ignorance, but why are they buying up all the alfalfa?
