acreage: 2011 USDA Land Values Summary - 2010 Data changes in report from last year - 08/05/11 11:54 AM

Looking through all the previous numbers back to 2006 they had not changed from year to year in the reports but for some reason 2010 data changed in the 2011 report. Below is two charts showing the differences in the numbers that were listed in the 2010 report vs. how they are listed in the 2011 report.
