@Brad Hoover , I must confess a limited amount of knowledge on the specifics of hog confinement. But it surprises me that a $700K structure placed permanently on a tract of land and used for productive purposes would not qualify for 1031 treatment. There may be some nuance to these structures I don't know but my suspicion is that there is a way for them to be 1031 compliant. There are many things more strange that are still considered real estate for purposes of 1031.
Dave I didn’t clarify well enough, the “Farm ground” does not qualify according to our attorney.
