The Progressive Farmer - Digital Issue

December 2018

The price floor under farmland started showing a few cracks this year, as low commodity prices and trade issues create uncertainty. That floor didn’t fracture everywhere or on all types of land. But in key areas, such as Iowa where prices have set new benchmarks over the years, there was a marked change between March and September. In the December issue, we examine these developments and offer actionable insights into minimizing weak positions in land equity, purchasing and selling. Also in this issue: We feature a Mississippi family who has taken 1,700 acres of land and through various businesses, developed revenue streams including row-crop farming, guided waterfowl hunts, honey production and lodging and event rentals. We review several strategies farmers and ranchers can use to adjust their income between the current tax year and the next tax year to help ease carryover loss changes in the new federal tax law. Finally, we offer guidelines for making updates in risk management decisions, as a continued down market requires farmers to scrutinize crop insurance costs and grain marketing moves.
