Sold! Record $19,000 Per Acre Iowa Farmland Sale Fueled By Inflation, Strong Commodity Prices

Apparently two farmers bid against each other and kept going, but averages now are that farmland is going half to farmers but the other half to investors.

Iowa's crop size will play a role in the prices buyers pay for Iowa farmland this year. Real estate experts call the land market the hottest in 40 years as inflation and more buyers than sellers also fuel the market.

Remarkable Rescue: Five Farmers Save Father and 6-Year-Old Son After Falling 70 Feet into a Well

https://www.agweb.com/news/livestock/beef/remarkable-rescue-five-farmers-save-father-and-6-year-old-son-after-falling-70 This story ran on U.S. Farm Report this morning - a lot worked together to make a successful outcome in what could have been an awful tragedy.

After six-year-old Louie Leseberg fell 70 feet into a dark well, his father jumped in to save him. What happened next, and the dramatic rescue that ensued, left even those who witnessed the rescue unable to explain.

This should garner some chuckles or snorting coffee moments.

Great Conjunction 2020: Jupiter and Saturn Meet on Solstice

https://www.almanac.com/great-conjunction-2020-jupiter-and-saturn-meet-solstice If you have clear sight to the low SW sky just after sunset on Dec. 21 - put this on your calendars. Some speculate this is the Star of Bethlehem that the shepherds saw on their quest to locate the Baby Jesus. BTW, the next best sighting isn't until 2080, so you may want to try to catch it this time around.

Farm Babe's article urges common sense and encouraging the public to go to the source, instead of blindly believing entertainment stars' opinions on agriculture. AGDAILY

Oh boy.

Dr Eugene Gu, a doctor with over 532K Twitter followers, sent out a tweet on the evils of "factory farming." 😬🤦‍♀️

Do you think "factory farms" are evil? I used to. Until I starting touring the inside of them.

Wow! Very impressive! There is a TON of credible and impressive science that goes into our food supply. I feel comfortable eating meat from farms of all shapes and sizes.

It's sad that so many vegan activists and people who've never raised livestock a day in their lives have opinions that are not based in reality. Please keep an open mind on this topic!

We have to take back the narrative and showcase the science and what it's REALLY like. 98% of farms are family farms! Technology has allowed them to do more with less, but the farmers VALUES have not changed.

I've written many articles on the topic but here is just one of them. Please read in it's entirety!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nziA33FrhoI&ab_channel=LandO%27LakesInc In recognition of National Farmers Day, which is celebrated every year on October 12. "The profession of farming began around 12,000 years ago with the domestication of livestock as hunter/gatherers settled down and started to plant their own food. In short, farming is one of the oldest jobs around. So let‘s take a moment to give some love to all the farmers who work tirelessly to feed us year round." National Today Land O'Lakes, Inc.

In 1921, 320 dairy farmers met in St. Paul, Minnesota, to form the Minnesota Cooperative Creameries Association. Their idea was simple -- join together to ef...

Farm Babe hosts Burger King to shed light on best animal practices.

Today. Was. Amazing!

This is filming of a little "fireside chat" with the Chief Marketing Officer of Burger King, Fernando Machado, and myself on the farm here in Iowa.

After they did the very offensive #CowsMenu commercial, I reached out to have a dialogue on how farmers view sustainability and what we do to help protect the environment.

It was a very successful couple of days out here and I'm SO grateful they took the time to learn from us. I view this as a very successful meeting and the start of a great long term conversation to include farmers as part of their future marketing efforts.

Shout outs to Cody Turk Iowa State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Ag Inspirations Brightmark Iowa Farm Bureau and more for also sharing their expertise on the farm tours. Stay tuned for video footage and so many more posts! It is great when we can come together with ideas on how to further strengthen the message of ag and really listen to one another. ♥️

Hoping this week's Hurricane Laura spared this part of the Delta that has withstood so much devastation starting from the spring of 2019.

Parts of the Mississippi Delta had been underwater for over one year when the pandemic began to unfold. Farmers and local businesses say falling crop prices and low yields are adding to a pile of slow-moving crises.

They say it’s driven by the state’s new emergency order requiring mandatory testing for COVID-19. It’s only the Latinos (required testing). Why? I work with other American people here; they’re not getting tested.” Michigan Farm Bureau Michigan Blueberries

WGN TV Tom Skilling Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship WGN-TV's chief meteorologist reports on the August 2020 severe weather "Derecho" - focusing on agriculture - that devastated central Iowa's grain storage facilities, corn/other grains ripening for harvest, and rural lands/buildings.

Ten-million of Iowa's 30-million acres of crops were severely damaged by Monday's derecho. Entire grain bins were crushed by storm gusts--some exceeding 100 mph. It's estimated Iowa lost 25 million bushels in grain storage capacity due to storm damage. The extent of the damage was evident Friday--days after the devastating derecho swept the region. https://www.farmprogress.com/disaster/derecho-assessing-damage
Iowa was hardly alone. Farms in Illinois and Indiana reported damage as well.
This toggled sequence of "before and after" satellite images out of CIMSS at the University of Wisconsin-Madison dramatically illustrates the extent of the damage: https://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/satellite-blog/images/2020/08/200728_200811_terra_modis_trueColorRGB_Iowa_derecho_crop_damage_anim.gif

10% fewer dairy permits or farms selling milk, but only 1% less milk in Michigan, meaning those cattle, for the most part, are getting absorbed into the larger farms remaining. Still too much milk produced for processing available.

I like technology but the more experience I accumulate the less I trust it. It seems to me that some technologies are starting to exist for the sake of the technology itself and not for the betterment of the individual or business that it is supposed to support. The marketing power of some technology is a technology all in itself. For example we are totally convinced that you must plant corn in rows with atomic precision. Nothing could be further from the truth than that but that is what we are trained to believe. The corn in this photo was planted with a coulter mounted banding tube on 10" spacing and it out yielded a precision 30" planter significantly.
Received a complimentary copy at the Hillsdale County fair. I enjoyed all of the articles and recipes. I was especially moved by Gail Malick's inspirational thoughts. My heart goes out to her- Mari
