It looks as if the drought is over for the time being.We have had close to a inch of rain and 6-8 inches of snow in the last 10 days with more coming tonight.Has to make a person feel better that we are maybe in a different weather pattern than last year at this time.I'm still holding a few bu of corn and soybean for that $10 and $20 that all you guys keep talking about.I have also got a good % of my 2013 and 2014 crop sold again.We have got most of the equipment ready to go as soon as the ground is ready.

Can I ask what county or counties in Iowa that you own farmland and farm in? I too am a North-Central Iowa farmland owner. My tiles quit running back in June/2012 and have not run any water since. This has been the first year that I have never seen the tiles not run after the harvest. Even in the 1988 drought, they ran in the Fall/1988 time period. Also, have you had any recent farm sales in your part of Iowa and can I ask for the CSR Point/Dollar Ratio of the selling price? Thanks.

Rsw, the only tile running would be from a field pond into a intake. Heres a chunk of ground that brought 11 something the other day http://www.newmanlawoffice.net/p/ahnemann-auction-
