    Talked to a gentleman the other day who claimed to have bought land North of Sioux City for $15,000. I don't know if he was windy or not.

    Can you get word out to these guys that I have some prime Iowa farmland for sale in Eastern Indiana? I would be content with $6-8k per acre unless they feel the need to pay more. I would even throw in a gift card to Texas Roadhouse and to Kohl's!

    Grundy County has the highest average CSR rating in Iowa, right?

    Yes, it has the highest CSR average in Iowa. Most is top-quality land.

    Heard this sale results on the "big show" and they said all 3 tracts were bought by the same farmer.

    never heard of a sale getting down to dollar bids ICF. 11,338 doesnt really add up unless they sold the dollar amount times a different acre number than 237. only been to a few sales where they say the dollar amount other than the per acre amount. I personally like the per acre sales better but not a big deal i guess. One of think that with such the high dollar amount it would bring just a touch more selling it per acre just for the simple fact the dollar amount is more staggering. Land has been bringing $100-120 per CSR point around here. Most going in the $110-120 range. we used to be about 10 points under the market but have caught up

    Yea g-mart, I too wondered about the $11,388 per acre figure. I am more of a CSR per point man, myself. However, I think CSR numbers could be outdated a little with this biotech corn. I have about 50 acres of 70 CSR ground on one corn field and that land gets 200+ bu per acre with normal weather. One problem is that one soil type can have several CSR rating points depending on the slope. The 70 CSR ground I have would be 89+ CSR with a 0-2% slope, instead I have a 2-5% slope on this ground which brings the CSR rating down to 70.
    Anyway, I am wondering how much higher Iowa land can be expected to bring or are we near the top for now? Guess time will tell. However at $11k per acre, I too wonder if I should maybe sell a quarter or half, only 160 acres or 320, so we are not talking about much ground here. 320*$11k = $3.5 million. Guess something to think about considering I only paid $1,000/acre in 1986 for the land.

    Personally I would sell 2 corn ICF.

    I'm curious as to your thoughts why that land sold for 1000/acre in the first place ?
