By: Missouri Farmers Today – November 4, 2023

“Survey results show the majority of Iowa’s farmland is bought by people who plan to farm it themselves. Most of the people who are buying farmland in Iowa are existing farmers.”

“As with every asset, land is what you can make off it. Of course, other factors can change the value to a particular farmer, such as location. A farm that borders you is worth more to you.”

“Location is one of the most important things for farmers. Location, location, location’ couldn’t be more fitting. Obviously you can’t move farmland. It has to fit with the operation if the intent is to buy it to use in production.”

Ag economist Tom Hertel receives Spirit of Land-Grant Mission Award

By: Indiana Ag Connection – November 3, 2023

It’s the most important award I’ll ever receive. A lot of places, you bring up a new idea and the administration’s first inclination is to find ways to kill it, It was the opposite at Purdue. They cleared the decks of administrative hurdles. That’s something I’ve always appreciated.”

Farm Bill Faces Battle as GOP Pushes To Strip Climate, SNAP Funding For Subsidies

By: The Hill – November 6, 2023

“These critics note that for virtually all U.S. commodities — such as corn, soybeans or barley — ARC/PLC payments will increase no matter what Congress does with this Farm Bill.
