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.
