Fair Farmland Rental Agreements Addressed In 44 Statewide Workshops | Farms.com

Fair Farmland Rental Agreements Addressed In 44 Statewide Workshops | Farms.com: Average corn and soybean budgets for cash-rented farmland will be unprofitable in 2015, according to projections based on currently available input costs and market prices.

To assist agricultural landowners, renters, agri-business professionals and others, University of Minnesota Extension educators will present 44 workshops throughout the state during November and December. A complete schedule for the “What is a Fair Farmland Rental Agreement?” workshops is here and also at z.umn.edu/10lp. No registration is required.

Rents are the major input cost for soybeans and corn, accounting for 44.5 percent and 28.5 percent, respectively. Landlords with increasing property taxes increased rental rates during record prices. Now, they are trying to play catch up when budgets do not support current rental rates and other input costs.

S.D. Farm Bureau, Farmers Union agree on ethanol | Prairie Business Magazine | Grand Forks, ND

S.D. Farm Bureau, Farmers Union agree on ethanol | Prairie Business Magazine | Grand Forks, ND: With grain prices dropping since 2013, farmers are closing the 2015 season with big crops and difficulty penciling profits.

Agweek visited with the presidents of the South Dakota Farm Bureau and the South Dakota Farmers Union, the two general farm organizations that aren’t specific to a commodity or a species of livestock. The organizations differ in emphasis, but agree on certain things. Significantly, both say ethanol will be important to the region, and will weather the financial storm.

Scott VanderWal, president of the SDFB since 2004, operates a third-generation family farm, raising soybeans and corn, with some custom cattle-feeding and custom harvesting near Volga, S.D., which is about 8 miles west of Brookings, S.D.

Nebraska farmland values slip low; crop prices are main negative factor | TheFencePost.com

Nebraska farmland values slip low; crop prices are main negative factor | TheFencePost.com: Earlier this month, a 320-acre irrigated farm in Boone County (northeast Nebraska) sold for $8,200 an acre.

The same week, a prime 80-acre farm in Lyon County (northwest Iowa), brought $15,100 an acre; a 40-acre flat parcel in Western Illinois sold for $14,700 per acre.

Whether these farmland prices will produce adequate returns for their new owners will depend on many factors going into the future. Certainly, the downturn in farm commodity prices this year is having a major impact on farmland values. The USDA predicts a 36 percent drop in net farm income this year, due to corn values down an estimated $7.1 billion, soybeans down $3.4 billion and wheat off $1.6 billion.

Walc is a new app that helps you get places with landmark-based directions like 'take a right at the McDonald's' - Yahoo Finance

Walc is a new app that helps you get places with landmark-based directions like 'take a right at the McDonald's' - Yahoo Finance: Walc is a new app built around the concept of landmark-based directions.
Instead of telling you to walk down a street for 0.3 miles, Walc asks you, “Do you see the Mcdonald's?” Then it tells you to walk toward it and take a right.

It's a concept that is instantly recognizable, as it mimics the way we give directions in person. But the question is whether this age-old paradigm provides anything of actual value that Google Maps doesn’t.
