OMAHA, Neb. (AP)

        A farm management company says average prices for high-quality farmland have dropped over the past year in Nebraska but slightly risen in Iowa.

        Farmers National Co. gathered sale price information from land grant colleges, Farm Credit banks and other industry sources.

        The report says an acre of irrigated cropland in Nebraska averaged $9,000 last year, down from $9,500 in 2016 and $10,000 in 2015. The average for farmland in Iowa was $10,500 last year, up from $10,100 in 2016 and 2015.     

        Randy Dickhut is senior vice president of real estate operations for Farmers National. He says prices are more stable than in previous years, despite a slight dip in prices in many states.

        Average prices have been dropping steadily since 2013 because of lower prices for farm goods.

    Nebraska State Patrol releases dashcam footage of accident

    A close call caught on a state trooper's dashcam. Take a look, a trooper comes up to a bridge on Highway 34 in southwest Nebraska. At the same time, a semi comes the other way. That semi crossed over the center line, poised for a head-on crash, but the trooper, quick thinking, swerved to avoid him. He was still side-swiped, but the trooper suffered only minor injuries. The semi driver went to the hospital. This is the third crash involving a state patrol car in the past week. A...More >>
