Ag Lease Auctions

The Board offers agricultural Leases at public auction in the County where the land is located. The two lists below show those parcels for which Lease auctions have been scheduled, and those parcels for which the auctions have not yet been scheduled. Most Lease auctions occur in the last three months of the year. Further information on these auctions can be obtained by calling the local Field Representative (see Staff List) or Laura Linden in our office at 402-471-3144, or by email.

Each sale ad will be available in PDF format three to four weeks prior to the auction. Lease auction dates may occasionally be changed before the sale ad is finalized. Upon request, we will be glad to send you a copy of the sale information.

Our standard applications for Lease, and Educational Land Lease Forms are available in PDF format (this standard lease form is not subject to modification by a potential lessee.) To view the forms in PDF format, visit the “AG Forms” page under Info/Forms and click on “Standard Applications for Lease, and Educational Land Lease Forms”. At your request, we will gladly forward a photocopy of these forms to you.

When the final advertised notice is published in a newspaper located in the County in which the land is located, the notice may contain stipulations --- that is, special conditions --- which apply to particular tracts. These stipulations are additions to the Standard Lease Forms. They are very important and should be carefully reviewed before the auction. The stipulations are also available before the auction on our website or you may contact us for a copy. The stipulations are listed on the advertisement and a copy may also be viewed at the County Treasurer's office.
