Why You Should Work With Us

Over the years, Rooster Ag’ has developed various Cash Lease formats that were created to simplify the leasing process. Our lease formats take the emotion out of leasing by using a fact-based process we created that protects the integrity of the land, the landowner and the tenant for generations to come.


As a result of our combined 200+ years of extensive involvement in the farming industry and unique problem-solving abilities, Rooster Ag’ is able to see the needs of each individual situation and implement a lease that will be the best fit for any specific farm. Our in-depth professional experience enables us to offer a variety of management options to fit our clients’ specific needs with complete flexibility, providing superior results with rates unachievable by our competitors.


Existing tenants easily adapt to these comprehensive leases, wherein some cases tenants have us represent them to work with their other landowners. While other prospective tenants are calling our office weekly looking to work with Rooster Ag’ Farm Management.


We manage farm assets for a substantial list of investors, banks and large family estates throughout Illinois. A list of references is available upon request.


We are sure you will find our process is a refreshing approach to farm leasing, based on facts not emotions.
