Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, June 19, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about flooding, tariff impact on soybean prices, Cub Foods and forest bathing.

The flooding in Illinois sent water into a hospital. No patients were in danger. Two friends also saved a man from his car in the flood.

As the tariff war with China escalates, soybean prices are taking the brunt of that. Futures were down more than 20¢ a bushel over night.

The corn crop improved, according to the condition report.

The co-founder of Cub Foods passed away.

Forest bathing is a wellness practice from Japan that's catching on here. Which just means taking a stroll through the woods, and using all five senses to connect.
