The Bureau of Agricultural Economics of the United States Department of Agriculture, with the Department of Agricultural Economics of the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station cooperating, is conducting a survey of agricultural real estate transfers in South Dakota. This study is designed to analyze the current land market. At the close of every three months period during the calendar year information concerning land transfers is gathered from county records and other reliable sources concerning the number of transfers that have occurred, the typos of sellers, the typos of buyers, the intent of the buyers, the price per acre at which the transfer occurred, and the types of financing most commonly used. A representative group of counties has been selected for intensive study, the results of which, it is believed, may indicate the nature of the trend in the land market through out South Dakota.
