    If space and wife allow, space them closer together.

    I used to space my dog purchases eight years apart. Now I am at the 5-6 year gap. I like the 5 year gap. I will likely buy one at 59.

    This is why successful farmers need consultants, tax advisers and/or or a strong college education.

    And this is just machinery.

    8 to 10 times over the past 20 years seems to be pretty close in IN, IA, and SD, but that is likely cherry picked top shelf land.

    2010, 2011, and 2012 saw huge % increases in farm land.

    It would be nice if CRP was the larger number. Maybe Feds stop insuring land that is repetitive in claims and demand land that is margin return to grass.

    All that said, to Haymakers point ... all this does is add pressure on the average farmer to make a living and have something to pass on or retire on.
