Central Illinois saw a new high price of $16,000 an acre paid for quality farmland March 15. The auction, conducted by Worrell-Leka Land Services, LLC, Jacksonville, and called by Darrell Moore, Winchester, featured 596 acres in Cass and Morgan counties. Four of the tracts, featuring 308 acres of PI 128 to 142 (maximum 147) land are located northeast of Litterberry in Morgan County. Two tracts, featuring 288 acres of PI 121 and 124 land are located south of Virginia in Cass County.

The record-breaking price came on a 96-acre tract, the first tract offered, which was 100% tillable and featured high-quality soils with a PI rating of 142.3.
