"Thanks for the report. And special thanks for such a positive one! We would like to see the farm in such fine display, but it's just a little too far us now. We appreciate your negotiating abilities -- keep at it. We like the cash rent method, although we recognize the possible larger return of other methods. Thanks for your help and timely reports - we like hearing from you" -- L Coppel
I have improved the net return for my clients over the past five years with fertilizer on farms, marketing, and higher cash rents.
I have made improvements on some of my client properties with irrigation, removing trees, ditch work, and cleaning up acreages.
