Dumb gov. and our tax money
« on: December 14, 2013, 10:35:47 pm »
Five cents a pound. The U.S. Government, sitting on a whole mountain range of surplus sugar, sold it all – almost 80 "typo" should be 80 thousand tons, 160 million pounds – Friday to two companies. Mann Lake Ltd, of Woodland, California, which also sell supplies and honey bee feed to beekeepers, bought 56 percent of the 79,750 tons that were offered by USDA for their sweetener business in California. Quality Liquid Feeds, of Dodgeville, Wisconsin, which makes feed supplements for beef and dairy cattle, bought the rest.

You will need to be able to pick it up in liquid forum. No bags of sugar.
