Every year Iowa State University (ISU) releases a report on Iowa farmland values based on responses to a survey of Iowa land brokers, farm managers, realtors, ag lenders, and farmers.  The 2016 Iowa Farmland Value Survey was released on December 13, 2016.  See my separate blog post regarding these results:  2016 ISU Farmland Survey Shows Third Year of Decline

“That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!”  Please check back next week to see what the Iowa land market is doing.
