On Friday, March 09, 2012 Glaub Farm Management auctioned 567 +/- acres in Craighead and Lawrence County, AR. The cropland was approximately 527 +/- acres and averaged $4,014/acre! Tracts 1 & 2 sold together at $4,034/acre. Tract 3 sold at $3,900/acre. Tract 4 was a recreational piece and had two bidders at the auction. The final bid was rejected due to not meeting the owner’s reserve. This particular tract was land locked and had no legal easement which limited the interest.
