“Spirited bidding was seen from local farmers looking to expand their operation in this tightly held area. It was a rare opportunity to purchase a high quality, all tillable tract of land,” says Soy Capital Ag Services Dave Klein, whose firm based in Bloomington handled the auction. “Looking back, we believe the previous farmland auction price record for Woodford County was set in August 2014 for 80.96 acres at a price of $15,500 per acre.”
