I found myself bursting with pride recently when a young man named Colin Hurd was featured in the Iowa State Daily for his work in developing a solution to a challenge that farmers face constantly: How to minimize soil compaction.
One of the greatest benefits of farmland ownership is land's stability over the long term. We're really seeing that now, as the crops are in and land sales begin to pick up. After the worst drought of our lifetime, it would stand to reason that land prices might weaken. After all, that's what we see in the stock market: A little bad news about one company or industry can send the entire market reeling.

All farmers understand supply and demand. A drought reduces the supply of corn, for example, and prices go up. It's natural, because we sell our farm products every year, in all kinds of markets. Commodity markets create the competition that establishes a fair market value.

It wasn't so long ago that we were all feeling downright euphoric about the 2012 crop season. A mild winter had ended early, enabling many farmers to get their crops in the ground early. Worldwide demand was (and still is) continuing to grow, and everything pointed to a year to remember.
