2014 Dawson County Survey Results

Once again we had an excellent response to our survey and feel fairly comfortable the results reflect what is happening in Dawson County. It's important to note that no two operations or rental agreements are exactly alike. Rents on either end of the range probably have some special circumstances. Production potential likely varies greatly on these rent extremes.
