PUBLIC NOTICE Eden-lhlen hosted County Card Party with Johannsen winning le players and only three people to play Hand 'n Foot, but, they got by with a dummy. High score went to Bill lohannsen with a 6,990 and Harold DeKam was runner-up with 6,410. The Hand 'n Foot prize went to Leona Frank and Harry Stuckenbroker won the door prize. It was a fun afternoon--good fellow- ship and a delicious lunch. It will be nice to have Connect Hearing from Marshall return to Pipe- stone for one day a month soon. That's what they told me the last time I called for batteries. I was told they would be putting an announcement in the Pip- estone Star as to the date and time. Last Tuesday afternoon the County Card Party was hosted by the Eden-Ihlen gals at their Center. There were six tables of Pinoch- TOCK OMMUNICATIONS Starting in March, Woodstock Telephone Company will become Woodstock Communications.

Besides, it was nice to see Bonnie Dreck- man of Balaton and meet Susie Johnson of Florence. Susie's husband worked for Dwayne Bents and Su- zanne Murphy who had Worthington Excavating.

Saturday Diane, Roger and I were among the guests greeting Bill John- son for his 80th birthday. Later we drove to Rush- more on icy roads to the Bents home where we were supper guests. Later we attended the Worthington High School Musical per- formance of Cole Porter's 'Anything Goes" at the Me- morial Auditorium. Quinn Bents was part of the cast. The play took place on the S.S.

Robert Rupp Construction, LLC Gravel and Dirt Hauling Basement and Excavating Ruthton, MN Bob and Cliff Phone 658-3632 or658-3336 - Trends for southwest Minnesota farmland rental rates unknown What are the trends in farmland rental rates and where are they going in 201571 have just complet- ed 45 workshops across the state and asked this question multiple times to each audience. What direction should rents go in 20157 I had three pos- sible answers, they could stay the same, they could go up .or they could go down. How you answer this depends on your cir- cumstances. Many farmers are look- ing at losses in 2015 for both corn and soybeans, but need to maintain their current farm size and are going to pay the same rate as last year even if it creates a loss at current prices hoping commod- ity prices will rise. In the FINBIN data base for the last five years from 2009 to 2013 rental rates have increased at a yearly rate of 11.8 percent. Commod- ity prices started declin- ing from record highs in 2012 and continued lower in 2013 and 2014. This in- cludes half of this average increase or 5.9 percent to get the estimate for 2014 average county rental rates. For 2015, commod- ity prices continue lower. A 2.95 percent increase was applied to 2014 rates to get an estimate for 2015 farmland rental rates. There will be pressure Extension News By Dave Bau, U of M Extension for higher farmland rental rates to go down in 2015 due to the steep decline in corn prices and lower a smaller decline in soybean prices. As I traveled the state, four counties had conducted farmland rental surveys and in each coun- ty rents declined in 2015 from 2014. One county de- clined by 7.7 percent, an- other 8.9 percent, another $9 per acre and another from an average of $290 in 2014 to $264 average for 2015. Can farmland rents con- tinue the increasing trend in 20157 The projected 2015 corn and soybean total income and expens- es would indicate a loss at current cash forward contract prices available using historic yields and 2014 rents and expenses. This could cause lower or flat farmland rental rates in 2015 as compared to 2014.
