Pifer’s Auction, Realty and Land Management held its annual Great Plains Land Expo in Fargo Wednesday. The one-day forum provides opportunities to learn about the issues impacting farmland. That includes a focus on mineral rights. “Mineral rights are gaining in popularity,” said Kevin Pifer, President/CEO. “A lot of people selling farmland want to retain those minerals, severing them from the deed at closing,” says Pifer. “Once those mineral rights are retained, how do people own them moving forward? There are lots of issues to be dealt with there.”
