The City of Storm Lake contains over half of Buena Vista County’s population. The county seat generates nearly all the manufacturing activity for Buena Vista, except for Rembrandt Enterprises and Ranco of Sioux Rapids. Its parks provide for most of the outdoor recreation activity during temperate months. All the commercial property in Storm Lake pays a higher tax rate than farms or residences.

A large Chinese food company announced last week that it will purchase America’s and Iowa’s largest pork producer and processor, Smithfield Foods of Virginia. Smithfield raises hogs under the Murphy-Brown umbrella and processes them under the Farmland, Armor and John Morrell names. The buyer, Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd., will pay $4.7 billion for Smithfield. Shuanghui says it wants the company to use as a direct export mechanism of American pork to China.
