  I believe dryland peaked out around Goodland 2-3 years ago at $3,000/acre. This is probably pretty close to the 5 year average. I'm shooting from the hip a bit there on the average, but it should be fairly close.

  Is this a good price, poor price or what? It would be nice to know relative the market or last 5 years.
