Good morning, and thank you for watching my video of the Missouri farm land. I am driving down Highway 94 from Jefferson City, Missouri to Hermann, Missouri on my way to show some real estate to a client. As I travel, I remember a story my dad, who was quite the story teller, use to tell me when I was a little girl travelling with them to visit our relatives in this area. If you look and notice there are two big rock bluffs on both side of the bottom area and the Missouri River itself. My Dad, the storyteller told me that way back when these two bluffs acted as the borders or the anchors of the river. When he was a little kid, he said they were able to drive their horse and buggy across the frozen river to move from one side to the other. I think they call it the bottom land not only because it is the low part of the area but also at one time, way back when, this land was actually part of the bottom of the river channel itself. Many years ago our Corps of Engineers helped open up the channel and deepen it so that the boats and barges could open up grain and commercial transportation services on the Missouri River. I personally think the land we have in Missouri, this in particular is some of the best soil we have in our State. I would stack it up against in crop production and soil content against many states in our Midwest region. Thing are not always the way they use to be if you just look at the river channel now vs. many years ago!
