Recent land sales reflect continuing overall strength in the marketplace, supported primarily by a still strong commodity price environment.
There are few markets that have changed as much (or as quickly) as the farmland market of the past 2 years. During this time, all the factors came together to create a “Goldilocks” market – strong crop yields, historically high commodity prices, generationally low interest rates, and more demand than supply of farms to buy.
For thousands of years, fire has been a natural and effective method for improving wildlife habitats. Today, we still use fire to meet some of our land management goals, but instead of letting a fire happen from a lightning strike, we use different strategies and tools to start and control fires so we can purposefully burn a certain area or patch of land. This practice is referred to as a controlled burn.
