2014 Farm Land Valuation and Leasing Meeting Scheduled for Harrison County

 Iowa State University Extension and Outreach works to bring unbiased information to both land owners and renters to help both parties make successful management decisions.  The land valuation and leasing meetings discuss current land values, rental rates, trends and projections of how values and rents might change in the coming years.  Other topics will include: how to calculate a rental rate based on county specific information, the variety of leasing arrangements that land owners and tenants may use, and the expected cost of crop production in the coming year. 

There will be a leasing meeting held on August 1st at 9:00 am in Logan, Iowa, at the Harrison County Extension Office, located at 304 East 7th Street.  The cost is $20/person pre-registered, or $25/person without pre-registration.  Attendees will receive a land leasing handbook with reference and resource materials.  The workshop will last approximately 2 ½ hours.  Shane Ellis, ISU farm management specialist for the west central region of the state will be presenting. To register, please call the Harrison County Extension office at 712-644-2105.
