---- — MANKATO — Blue Earth County has added a new feature to its website to provide information on agricultural land sales by township. A County map displays the location of sales and allows users to retrieve a printable summary sheet listing of recent agricultural land sales in the county.
The map and related agricultural land sales data may be found at www.blueearthcountymn.gov/agsales.
The sales information is used to help the Assessor’s Office estimate the per acre market values for the 2014 assessment (taxes payable in 2015) and is also useful to the public, those in the agricultural industry and others in monitoring agricultural land sales and trends in the market. The information is updated throughout the year.
