MORNING Midwest Digest, June 29, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about holiday travel, farm bill passage, hog prices and reports and closing toy stores.

Be forewarned, Tuesday to Thursday will be a big travel period, and AAA expects it to be up 5% from a year ago.

The Senate passed a farm bill yesterday to reauthorize farm programs, and it omits controversial work requirements from the House version. It now goes to conference committee.

Hog futures are expected to fall this morning after release of the quarterly hogs and pigs report. It showed the highest estimate of hogs and pigs since records started being kept.

Toy stores are becoming obsolete in the age of online shopping. The last of the Toys R Us stores closed yesterday.
