My brother-in-law is a wheat farmer and reads websites daily about wheat prices, grain news and agri-business in general. He read a story last week, that he since can’t find and I can’t find when I googled it, which makes me wonder if the story was scrubbed, about George Soros purchasing grain elevators in Nebraska. These particular elevators are apparently the last stop before the wheat is shipped out of the county.
Please read on. I did find some interesting stories about Soros and his acquistion of other grain and grain elevators. The name of his company is Gavilon and according to several agri-business sites, it’s the 3rd largest business, now just behind ADM (Archer Daniels Midland) and Cargill. Last fall he also purchased a huge amount of the grain business in Australia. This from Agrimoney.com in December:
AWB [Austrailan wheat] was in talks to sell a stake in its domestic grains handling business to US-based Gavilon before the Australian group became a takeover target.
Gavilon, which is backed by George Soros’s Soros Fund Management has since unveiled its own expansion plans in Australia, the southern hemisphere’s top wheat-exporting target.
Soros is not just a tumor in America, he’s a global cancer.
This from Reuters on March 24th, which makes no mention of Soros:
Gavilon acquisition allows it to support PNW export mkt
* Elevator purchase equates to 8.4 million bushel capacity
(Reuters) – U.S. grain firm Gavilon Grain said on Thursday it will buy Union Elevator and Warehouse’s 16 grain elevators in the Pacific Northwest, the company’s second big purchase of U.S. grain facilities in the last six months.
Privately held Union Elevator, where employees own a significant share of the company, approved the transaction on Wednesday, with sale expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2011.
The purchase of 16 elevators at 12 locations in eastern Washington will expand Gavilon’s grain capacity by 8.4 million bushels.
“The addition of Union Elevator’s grain facilities and origination capabilities position us well to support the growing Pacific Northwest export wheat market and serve the Columbian Basin feed grain market,” Greg Konsor, vice president and general manager of Gavilon Grain, said in a statement.
The Pacific Northwest is the No. 1 wheat export terminal in the United States.
Omaha, Nebraska-based Gavilon — a commodity trading firm formed in 2008 when ConAgra Foods (CAG.N) sold it to investors — purchased grain handler DeBruce Companies last year, making it the third-largest U.S. grain storage network behind Archer Daniels Midland (ADM.N) and Cargill Inc [CARG.UL].

In October (also from Reuters), a deal was made with Soros backed Gavilon to purchase the privately owned and Kansas City based, DeBruce Grain.
The purchase includes DeBruce’s grain handling facilities, fertilizer distribution network, feed mills and a soybean crushing plant.
DeBruce Grain Inc has grain elevators in Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Alabama, Indiana, Wisconsin and Mexico, with combined licensed storage capacity in excess of 140 million bushels.
The DeBruce purchase will raise Gavilon’s grain storage capacity to nearly 300 million bushels, making it the No. 3 U.S. grain handler after ADM Grain Co., a unit of Archer Daniels Midland Co (ADM.N), and privately held Cargill Inc., according to data from Milling & Baking News, an industry publication.
According to the Wall Street Journal, DeBruce also owns feed-livestock mills – feed for beef and pork. How soon before Soros starts buying up the feed lots, I wonder?

Big Thank You to my brother-in-law, Mark for bringing this to our attention.

Gavilon firm may be headed for a sale
Omaha’s Gavilon LLC, formerly the grain merchandising arm of ConAgra Foods and the nation’s third-largest grain storage company, may be headed for a multibillion-dollar sale.
A spokesman for Gavilon’s principal owner, hedge fund group Ospraie Management of New York City, said Friday that the business is considering “strategic alternatives,” a phrase that usually means a company is seeking a buyer. The statement did not name potential buyers or say when a sale might take place.
Gavilon has about 350 employees at its headquarters and trading room, leased from ConAgra in downtown Omaha, and about 2,000 employees at more than 300 locations, mostly in the United States.
It recently opened an office in Kiev, Ukraine, and has offices on six continents. In a 2010 World-Herald story CEO Greg Heckman said, “We’re excited about the opportunities. The world is going to demand more food and fuel, and we’re going to be there to help that happen as efficiently as possible.”
On Friday, Heckman’s office referred questions to Ospraie.

Is Soros transferring the management and control of these Granary facilities over to the UN Agenda 21 -ICLEI organizations ??? If Soros is transferring the control of these facilities to this international agenda their plans are a kind of Bolshevism .

So it’s not enough for Soros to manipulate currency, leaders and the media. Now he plans to control the populations of the world through our food supply. There is a special place in Hell for Soros, I’ve no doubt.
April 4th, 2011 at 3:55 PM
BTW, if you want to know how the Jews will treat us, just look at how they treat the Palestinians right now. Barely any running water…they live behind a fence.
April 4th, 2011 at 3:53 PM
To attack Israel? NO, not to attack israel. For israel to gain power of a large portion of the earth. Once they control the food supply of the USA, I’m guessing they will be very close to implementing the mark of the beast, building their 3rd temple, and naming their messiah (our anti-christ).

Really great post Roxy.
April 4th, 2011 at 3:58 PM
Thanks a lot! Spread this news around okay?
April 3rd, 2011 at 8:06 PM
Thank you Roxy.
April 3rd, 2011 at 2:18 PM
Gah! Every time I turn around, I find out more about Soros and how he’s quietly grabbing power in one way or another.
Yet, America snoozes on.
April 3rd, 2011 at 12:12 PM
Wow, what a great post Roxy! Man, this guy Soros is into everything. He along with his puppet-in-chief Obama are bringing this nation down at a frightening pace.
April 3rd, 2011 at 12:01 PM
Super duper job on this Roxy. You nailed it.
April 3rd, 2011 at 12:00 PM
Roxy, I grabbed a webshot of the article to which you refer. I left you for you at the village.
Before the end of the day, I hope you do not mind if I re-post this. I will also email your post to everyone I know, especially the Progressives.
April 3rd, 2011 at 5:04 PM
Be my guest D. As I said – the more people that find this out, the better.
April 3rd, 2011 at 10:59 AM
Great report, ROXY. Is there anything free of the malevolent Soros touch?
April 3rd, 2011 at 9:21 AM
Well, if you think it’s as important as I do, spread this news around. I think people should know that Soros is infiltrating our food supply and the worlds food supply too.
Like Ann Barnhardt said – “when you control the food, you control everything” and everyone.
April 3rd, 2011 at 8:54 AM
You sure are good at uncovering those things which seem to slip by the rest of us. Great find Roxanna and thank you for sharing……… 😀
April 3rd, 2011 at 8:40 AM
If Obama had any love for this Country, he would never had allowed this level of control over our food supply.
Under his administration, a stake is slowly but surely being driven through America’s heart.
Thx Roxy !
April 3rd, 2011 at 6:31 AM
Well, I’m for one are not surprised. thank you for this post, it all connects with the NWO crowd inclduing Obamas agenda.
As you recall, this is part of the plan foretold in The Bible, in which ‘The Beast’ (UN) will control who eats, and who doesn’t (mark of the beast). Biometric ID’s is the purpose to track who will be the lucky one to buy, trade, and eat.
Th NWO so far is on track; the sovereighnty of the USA is being dismantled bit by bit (Libya current kinetic ations) with the intent to finally attack Israel.
The deckchairs are being arraigned; while America sleeps. 2012 is a make or break to put a stop to all of this. We are either remain the USA as we know it, or we are seeing the One World Government installed.
I’m not trying to be a conspiracist; my Bible is my manual for the current events. Think avout it!
