MONROE - Farmland values in Wisconsin are remaining stable despite their decline throughout the Midwest. According to a November report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the average value of farmland in Illinois, Iowa and Michigan has fallen since late 2015, with Michigan's values decreasing by 11 percent. The same report, however, shows that Wisconsin's farmland values have increased by 2 percent for the same period, the highest growth in the region.
