Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, June 28, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about Trump's speech, tariff benefits, holiday help and cheese balls.

President Trump spoke for more than an hour at Fargo, ND, last night, in what the local paper called more of a campaign speech for himself, not a support speech for a local candidate.

It's hard to find anyone in the farm sector who has benefited from the tariff issues this summer. But the feed sector and steel industry seem to be coming out ahead.

Retailers have already started hiring holiday help. 

Cheese balls are coming back. They haven't been made by Kraft in more than a decade.
