OPINION: Your old mate has long argued Landcorp’s farming business – Pamu – is a bigger dog than he is.
The tech mogul, who let’s face it, would have been mercilessly bullied at school, and the fourth richest person in the world with a net worth of US$121 billion, has built up a massive agriculture portfolio across the US.
He owns 108,853 hectares of land in Washington, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana.
His largest holdings include 27,952 hectares in Louisiana. Your old mate suggests, going by this, the old saying that “the meek shall inherit the earth” should have instead been “the geeks shall inherit the earth”!
