Published on Sep 3, 2021 by Peoples Company

In August 2021, there were a whopping 132 agricultural tracts greater than 35 acres offered at public auction in Iowa with an average dollar per gross acre of $11,219. The average dollar per CSR2 for the 25 tracts that offered greater than 85% tillable was $157, which is up from July’s $/CSR2 average of $154. Iowa auctions saw a total revenue of $153,466,247 in August. I think it’s safe to say that the market was hot.
