Hi Susan,
I am a farmer in Nebraska, and am thinking of adding a farming operation in Brazil. I spent 10 days in the Cuiaba area looking at the operations there and have decided that it is something I want to explore further. I don't know if you are interested in helping me, or are in a position to help. I would appreciate any help you could give, or advise that you have.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Doug Boisen

Hello Doug;
I am in the, or was in the agricultural aviation business. I was the first greengo pilot to fly a sprayplane in Brazil in 1966. I worked as a advisor through the US Govmt. for 3 years. I also have an interest in farming there and setting up a chemical formulating plant and a aerial application business to go along with it. But Brazil has a lot of strange laws that has to be delt with, be very careful in your endevor. But that is some of the most beautiful land in the world. All that was undeveloped when I was there Take care BUD

I am considering moving to the town of Arabutanga, in Moto Grasso. I have brazilian friends that are cattle ranchers there and they would help me get established there. I cannot afford to live on my retirement here in the states and wondered if you could tell me what a small apt would rent for in that region?
