  • Farm real estate markets in the Tenth District remained relatively stable in the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • The district covers Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and portions of western Missouri and northern New Mexico
  • The stability in farmland values was due, in part, to fewer sales, and a significant number of bankers expect values to remain steady in 2018.
  • Farm income in the fourth quarter continued to decline, and credit conditions remained weak, but the pace of deterioration has continued to slow.
  • The relative strength of farmland values has provided support for farm finances despite the ongoing pressure of low agricultural commodity prices on farm income.
