12/5/2016 FarmWeek Article

Monday, December 05, 2016



December 5, 2016

FARMWEEK Reading Activity from Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom.

Another in the series of Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom non-fiction text examples to be used in your classroom.  Remember, these will be available every MONDAY afternoon that FarmWeek is published during the school year.

Questions about this can be directed to Kevin Daugherty, Education Director of Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom at [email protected]

2016 winds down with uptick in farmland sales

1.        Farmland values have generally softened in the past two years.  What does this mean?  (answers vary, but should include something like prices dropped or didn’t climb sharply)

2.       What is a generally accepted reason that farmland prices have softened in the past two years?  (prices are not as strong because there are lower farm returns.)

3.        In the September Soy Capital Ag Services Auction, how much money was spent for the 195.94 farmland acres in Iroquois County?  (applied math…..195.94 x $15,117=$2,962,176.15)

4.       The article states that most farmland sales in Illinois’ continue to occur to settle estates or to transition to the next generation.   Explain what this means in your own words.  (answers will vary)

5.       If inventory (supply) of land remains short (meaning less land for sale) and the demand is constant, what happens to price? (a good time to review supply and demand-  supply is decreased or steady, and demand is steady or increasing, price increases)

6.       Research sales of land in your area.  What is the inventory?  What are average prices?  (Answers will vary!)
