Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, August 1, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about Chipotle food safety issues, missing Iowa woman, next week's crop report and a hay fire on a semi truck.

The new Chipotle CEO has to deal with another food safety outbreak. 

Authorities are still working on the case of a missing college student in Iowa.

When the crop report comes out next week, analysts will focus on number of corn ears. If USDA assumes average ear weight, a higher number of ears will lead to a higher yield.

Did you see the truck carrying bales of hay that was on fire, near Kansas City yesterday? It's not the first time the driver has had a load catch fire.
