NeFU voices concerns with farmland purchases by Mormon church

SHARE NOW

The president of Nebraska Farmers Union says he’s concerned about the large farmland purchases that the Mormon church has been making in the state.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has bought nearly 370,000 acres of Nebraska agricultural land in recent years, and John Hansen tells Brownfield it’s creating some challenges for the state’s farmers and ranchers.

“Anytime you have a large outside entity with huge pocketbooks and they buy up farm or ranch land, it’s virtually impossible for local owners, especially beginning farmers or beginning ranchers, to ever begin to compete with the size of those pocketbooks.”

Hansen says the church could soon pass Ted Turner as the state’s largest landowner, and the state’s ag community has not been silent on the issue.
