Wisconsin Farm Real Estate Values Dipped in Past Year
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/07/2020

The tough agricultural economy is likely to blame for a drop in the total value of Wisconsin farm land and buildings during the past year. According to the USDA, the average acre of cropland in the Badger State dropped to $4,770, down $80; with pasture values also falling by more than two percent to $2,250 per acre. The findings come after the same properties were valued at an all-time high of $70 billion just a year earlier.

Overall, farm real estate, including land and buildings, decreased by two percent to $4,850. Wisconsin was just under Michigan's $4,860 per acre, but more than Minnesota's value of $4,840.

As of January 1, Wisconsin had a cropland rental rate of $146 per acre. Non irrigated cropland rent averaged $138.00 per acre, while irrigated fields went for $245.00. On average, pastureland in Wisconsin rented for $35.00 per acre.

U.S. farm real estate value averaged $3,160 per acre for 2019, unchanged from year ago levels.
