On the Road Again: Lafayette County

We set out today for our journey across the Western part of Missouri to capture the impact of the pipeline on farmland in Lafayette, Saline, Cass, and Bates counties. Our route today took us through parts of Lafayette County to visit Neal Bredehoeft’s farm. Neal’s family has been farming the land since 1907, growing soybeans and corn. The Flanagan South pipeline crosses his farm, and restoration crews from Enbridge are just about finished. The pipeline construction sliced through parts of his crop and left a 130ft wide track of cleared land that will soon be seeded for the season’s harvest come this April.
