The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Study of Land Sales by Government and Insurance Lenders in Seven Southeastern Minnesota Counties.

Naramore, Barbara and Thora Cartlidge.

The impact of farm foreclosures on land tenure patterns and land use was examined in Fillmore, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Wabasha, and Winona counties. The study, for years 1983 through mid-1989, showed that sales of foreclosed land by government and insurance company lenders are increasing. The typical buyer intends to retain ownership and to continue using the land for crop production. Land sold by insurance lenders brought higher prices than land sold by government lenders. Insurance lenders also tended to sell larger parcels and to hold land longer than government lenders.
