Demand from Prairie farmers looking to add to their individual land bases was curbed by a late spring — but farmland prices were still up, according to real estate agents specializing in the field.
“There is desire from farmers to add land, but weather conditions levelled off that demand,” said Grant Tweed of Century 21 Westman Realty at Brandon, Man. “Everyone’s spring was delayed and then rushed. I think people decided to deal with what they had before they started to look at more acres.”
