The organization, which services producers in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming, monitors real estate value trends through semi-annual appraisals of 65 benchmark farms located throughout the association's four-states. The update is handled by the association's appraisal team. It monitors 21 farms in Iowa, 19 in Nebraska, 23 in South Dakota and 2 in Wyoming.
