An early indication of what farmland values look like moving into 2018. Dan Legner is the new president for the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers. The group hosted its annual meeting this week in Champaign.
Legner works as a rural appraiser for Compeer Financial in Princeton in Bureau County. He says the highest farmland sale in Bureau County occurred a few years ago at $15,200 an acre.
