April 9, 2012 by dbraz83190zeal Leave a Comment Joyce Watson, president and CEO of the Illinois Agricultural Leadership Foundation, was presented with the Outstanding Service to Illinois Agriculture Award by the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers at that organization’s annual meeting held here February 16. Watson is the founding director of the leadership program and became the Foundation’s first chief executive in 1982. In accepting the award, Watkins noted that the original purpose of the leadership program was to “foster” a new bumper crop across the state…a finely-honed harvest of the best and brightest agricultural leaders. The Outstanding Service to Illinois Agriculture Award has been presented annually by the Society since 1940.
Hicks is a 1971 graduate of the University of Illinois with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture, majoring in animal science. Hicks started his career in agriculture as an assistant and associate agricultural advisor with U of Il Extension Services in Dixon, IL. He has continued seeking professional improvement education and received his Accredited Farm Manager designation from the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers in 1986, and became an Illinois-licensed Real Estate broker in 2000. His ‘outside’ leadership activities have included 24 years as a 4-H leader, chairman of the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension Services State Extension Advisory Council, treasurer of the Illinois Agricultural Legislative Event Committee, a member of the U of I College of Agriculture Deans Advisory Committee, vice president of the Pleasant Plains School board, and president of Extension Partners.
The Society has inducted members into its Hall of Fame since 1980, “and Jerry joins a long list of individuals who have shown outstanding leadership within the organization and within the industry of agriculture in Illinois,” Cude stated. April 9, 2012 by dbraz83190zeal Leave a Comment Here are 30 facts culled from the 2012 Illinois Land Value report. April 9, 2012 by dbraz83190zeal 1 Comment The prices being paid for farmland across Illinois continue their upward spiral with the tops being in the $10,000 to $13,000 per acre range across the state.
The top price of $13,000 per acre was for a November 2011 sale of 37.7 acres in Christian County.
February 20, 2012 by dbraz83190zeal Leave a Comment Trends and types of current farmland lease models will be the subject of a panel discussion during the 2012 Illinois Land Values Conference to be held March 22 at the Parke Hotel and Conference Center here.

In addition to making gifts to the Illinois 4-H Foundation themselves, board members provide advice, counsel, and expertise to the fundraising, marketing, and communication operations of the Foundation. Each board member has a personal commitment helping equip Illinois 4-H youth with leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
He served as a representative and chairman of the Illinois State 4-H Youth Leadership Team and a Speaking for Illinois 4-H trainer. She graduated in 1972 from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Arts in the Teaching of German. She currently serves as the Youth Development Educator in Unit 20 which includes Clark, Crawford and Edgar counties.
She is a native of Clark County and continues to reside there with her husband and three children. She received her Bachelor's Degree from the University of Illinois with a degree in Agricultural Communications with an emphasis in Advertising. He went on to Concordia University Wisconsin, where he received his master's in Physical Therapy. This farm management and real estate sales company manages farmland all over central Illinois. He volunteers as President of Extension Partners, a volunteer group supporting IL Extension.
Sharon earned her BS degree from the University of Illinois and Masters degree in Education from National- Louis University. He is a former Vo-Ag instructor, elementary principal, school superintendent, and community college coordinator.

She was partnered with fellow 4-H’er Jim Wormley for the OFS Share-the-Fun square dance team in 1958, and they married in 1969.
The Foundation sponsors the Illinois Agricultural Leadership Program, an advanced leadership development program for emerging Illinois production agriculture and agribusiness men and women.
In her capacity she is responsible for all programming, management, and fund raising activities of the Foundation, including the Leadership Development Program.


A number of past ‘students’, who are also Society members, were on hand at the awards program.
Its previous recipients have included state governors, state directors and federal secretarys of agriculture, educators, and other leading Illinois citizens who have been involved with agriculture in the state. Hicks, AFM, partner and treasurer of Agrivest, Inc., Springfield, IL, was inducted into the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers’ Hall of Fame during the organization’s annual meeting held here recently. He followed up that degree with a master’s in 1976 with advanced studies in agriculture communications. From there he served as executive vice president of the Illinois Pork Producers association. Both Land Values and Lease Trends continue higher into 2012, and are expected to stay strong as long as crop income levels hold or increase. Price and rent levels both increased steadily through 2011, and consistently among different productivity classes of land and regions of the state. Land values maintain support from investment capital seeking alternatives to other financial assets.
Long leasehold interests, extended Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts, deed restrictions, etc. As supplies of land tightened buyers were less concerned about one year leases, and receiving partial interests in cur- rent year crop or leases in progress, looking beyond a few months toward long term investment value.
The annually renewable USDA Farm Program appears to have very little effect on land values in 2011, eclipsed by other more dominant factors.
Current crop genetics increase yields while reducing year-to-year variability, which improves earning potential for lower classes of land. Recreational tracts and transitional development land have been hardest hit because of struggling non-agricultural economies.
Some areas or counties carry name or reputation prestige, showing stronger prices than land with similar productivity and attributes in nearby areas or counties. Regardless of the means of sale – public or sealed bid auction, broker listing, private transactions – excellent and good productivity tracts needed minimal marketing time, with a generally shorter period from exposure-to-market through sale to closing.
Areas with higher concentrations of livestock – dairy, hogs, poultry – had generally more favorable markets for their production in 2011. Variable cash rent leases grow in popularity and pay landowners competitively higher returns in 2011 due to higher average prices and excellent soybean yields. Wind farm activity, where already planned or under construction, continued to impact land values and add to total return in 2011. In some areas larger percentage increases for lower productivity land were noted, based on expectations of improv- ing crop returns, and absolute increases on lower values resulting in larger percentage growth. Continuing fixed cash rent rates generally showed a tendency to lag other lease and operating contracts as income returns and commodity markets have been in a general up trend over several successive crop years. By year end 2011 price paid per productivity index (PI) point per acre was running in the upper $60s to mid $70s. In many areas of the state it was a challenging crop production year in 2011, with wide variations in conditions from too much rain at times in some locations, to very hot and dry conditions in some areas later in the summer. The generally wet spring throughout the state accentuated the importance of good drainage and much drainage tile and waterway improvement work was done throughout the year.
Land value for crop production continues to gain on values for development land, as cropland increases and develop- ment land declines or holds steady. The number of tracts and amount of acres transacted was generally more than previous years, as higher prices pulled supply onto the market. In some local instances proposals for underground gas storage, recent discovery of production volumes of oil, and continuing coal mining has sensitized the market to the value of mineral interests and rights. Irrigated land returned proportionately higher income due to higher commodity prices and improved yield from irrigation. Farm operators continued and expanded the trend of bringing current landlords and other absentee investors to the farmland market. In 2011 there have been several notable expansions or new construction of high capacity grain rail-loading facilities, mostly destined to move Illinois grain to cattle, hog, and poultry operations out of state.
Some areas benefit with strong grain prices from grain market outlets on navigable rivers, rail terminals, local area end-users and specialty food product processors. Another year in 2011 where corn following soybeans, rather than one or more years of corn, performed significantly better. Almost every county in the state had instances of a record new high price per acre for farmland. This is according to the 2012 Farmland Values and Lease Trends Report released today by the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers at its annual Land Values Conference. The event is being sponsored by the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers. The Chapter’s disciplines focus on managing farmland, valuing farmland and other rural real estate, and agricultural consulting. The Society was founded in 1928 and has grown to a membership of over 350 active members and "friends." Members of the society manage the production and marketing of nearly 10 percent of the corn and soybeans produced in Illinois.

He left that position to go into farm management and was named senior farm management officer with FFG Agrivest (successor to First National Bank) in 1994. However, undiscovered “pockets of prosperity” where land can be typi- cally purchased at lower prices relative to its productivity are fewer and further between. However changes in tax, policy, and funding have slowed the progress of many wind tower projects. Well-drained or pattern-tiled land will sell for a premium, especially if there are well-documented and accurate maps of drainage improvements.
