Western Land Symposium

The 5th Annual Western Land Symposium, held November 19, 2018, was a huge success!

November 9,2018Farm, ranch and real estate agents, brokers, and farm and ranch owners from across the Western States converged in Meridian, Idaho, to learn about topics relevant to land ownership. This was a “sold out” event, which was hosted by the World Organization Land Federation and sponsored by Knipe Land Northwest, LLC, Pioneer 1031 Co., The Range Writer Magazine.

The Western Land Symposium is a great opportunity for land owners, buyers, sellers, and real estate agents and brokers to learn more about the specialty of land, land brokerage and the issues that accompany land.  This year’s topics of discussion and education included: 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges; Water right issues; real estate market update on farms, ranches, and land; market update on commodities and cattle; drone photography; mineral rights; marketing farms, ranches, and other types of real estate; and private property rights.

There were many major issues of discussion and concern.  The biggest included protecting private property rights. Another is what land owner’s, agents and brokers can do to protect rights associated with real estate ownership.  Attendees exchanged views on looking to the future to create a lasting legacy for family farmers and ranchers. Overall, issues that affect land ownership, buying, and selling real estate throughout the West.

Speakers came from all different aspects of the farm, ranch, real estate, and land markets. Some of the speakers included: Pioneer 1031 Co., SPF Water Engineering, Harvest Capital, Stand & Fight Club, Northwest Farm Credit Services, Rapid Aerial, Varin Wardwell Attorneys, and Idaho Cattle Association.  Past speakers have included the Governor of Idaho, Lieutenant Governor of Idaho, and many others representing real estate, business, agriculture, farming, ranching, rights in land, real estate ownership, oil, gas, mineral, water, timber, wind, and the transfer of agriculture real estate.

The next Western Land Symposium will be held in November 2019.  We hope to see you there! It is open to farmers, ranchers, property owners, future property owners, real estate agents, real estate brokers and anyone who wants to know more about issues that affect farming, ranching, timberland, and other agricultural-commercial real estate in the West.
