Wagering (on) the ranch
Entryways' acquisition of farmland in North Dakota at first raised concerns in view of a Depression-period regulation that disallows partnerships and restricted risk organizations from possessing farmland in the district.
North Dakota's Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring recently told KFYR-TV — a TV slot in Bismarck, North Dakota — that many individuals weren't excited about the information.
