Buffett was at a meeting of an international food aid agency when he was told that feeding the millions of starving people in Africa was simple.</p><p>Just give them better seeds, someone said.</p><p>That advice might work on some philanthropists. But Buffett, son of billionaire Warren Buffett, happens to be an Illinois farmer.</p><p>“This guy was explaining to me how to farm and he’d never been on a farm in his life,” he said. “So it really kind of irritated me. I came home and said, ‘OK, I’m going to have data to show these guys.’”</p> Sat, 17 Aug 2013 04:57:00 +0000 Peggy Lowe 20349 at http://hppr.org Howard Buffett: Farmer of the world
