Fillmore County Land Rent Surveys


Mon, Oct 27th, 2014
Posted in All Commentary

This will mark the nineteenth consecutive year for the Fillmore County Land Rent Survey. Over these years we have conducted the survey in a few different ways, originally in a direct mailing to all land owners and producers in a joint newsletter with the Farm Service Agency. After the newsletter was discontinued, we decided the best way to reach our target audience was by printing the survey and including it as an insert in the Fillmore County Journal. This year, in an effort to keep costs down and stay within our budget we explored the option of printing the survey within the newspaper as a clip and return. So, a few weeks ago we included the Fillmore County Land Rent Survey form in the Fillmore County Journal. Unfortunately, we received a lower than average response.

We need your response! We have extended the return date to November 1st. If you no longer have the original survey and would like to respond, please visit the University of Minnesota Extension website at www.extension.umn.edu/county/fillmore under the tab “County Agriculture Educator” or contact the Fillmore County Extension Office at (507)765-3896 or ruesi001@umn.edu and Kristi will send you a survey.

After November 1, we will tabulate the results to give us a county wide average; for those townships with three or more parcel responses, we breakdown a township average and range.

Gary A. Hachfeld, Extension Educator, Regional Office, Mankato has updated the cropland rental rates document to include the 2014 National Ag Statistics Service (NASS) numbers. The NASS numbers are a good comparison to the FINBIN numbers listed. The document can be found on our University of Minnesota Extension, Ag Business Management website at www.extension.umn.edu/agriculture/business under the tab “Land Economics”.

David Bau, Extension Educator, Worthington Regional Office, will be holding farmland rental workshops in November. Make plans to attend a farmland rental workshop at one of the following locations.

Monday, November 17, 9:30-11:30 a.m., Winona County Office Building, 202 W 3rd St., Winona.

Monday, November 17, 2-4p.m., Fillmore County Office Building, 902 Houston St. NW, Preston.
