Midwest bankers are bullish on Wisconsin farmland. A survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago finds this state’s farmland values have jumped 10% from the same period last year. The increase in land value is being credited to strong commodity prices and demand from non-farm buyers. When the survey is expanded to include Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan, land values were found to be up by 18% compared to the third quarter of last year.
