    I'm guessing the buyer paid cash.

    I'm far from a farming expert, but that won't stop me from replying.

    I believe that NW Iowa farmland has been going for the highest $$ amount but that's ridiculously high. We've just had quality farmland in SW Iowa appraised for 9-10 per acre.

    That was the result of a ******* match between two loaded Dutchmen in Steve King country. Not an accurate reflection of the market.

    I'd be pretty nervous buying land at that price.

    I'm not sure what you're getting at here.

    Since it probably won't be the last ******* match between two loaded Dutchmen in Steve King country, it probably is a pretty accurate reflection of the market...

    Thats crazy. So a little easy math here is that 80 acres x $21,900= $1,752,000. If this person went corn on corn and received $7 avg/bu they would need to sell 250,285 bushels or approx 3128bu/acre just to pay for the land. This doesnt take into acct the cost of inputs/taxes etc.

More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    More importantly, do either of these gentlemen have non-hideous daughters in their 20s-30s?
    Although they can probably be hideous to be honest.

    He could sell it in 10 years for $30,000/acre.

    That'd make up for it.
