“The value is a function of current income, expected future income and interest rates,” explains Dan Bigelow, assistant professor of agricultural economics at Montana State University. “The per-acre value of farmland serves as a barometer for the overall financial well-being of the ag sector.” For 2020, farm real estate is estimated as 83% of the ag sector asset value.

President's Message

Keith Coble
AAEA President

April 2020

I write this note during challenging times. Many of us are working from home learning to teach, or collaborate on-line. We also face challenges for the future.

First, let me address the question of our summer meetings. We are continuing to plan for the 2020 AAEA Annual Meeting taking place July 26-28 in Kansas City, MO. The AAEA Staff and Board are aware of the concerns and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our top priority is the health, safety, and security of our meeting attendees. We are closely monitoring developments and we appreciate the concerns and information shared with us during this time. We will continue to evaluate and let our membership know the status of those meetings and if we do cancel what alternatives are planned.
