MIDDAY-Midwest Digest, November 27, 2020

Max Armstrong offers insight on shopping local, the crop buying trend with China and the end of a major holiday light display in an Iowa town

Max Armstrong looks at businesses that have had a good year, yet that's not true for many small retailers. On Small Business Saturday, Max encourages people to do business with these local shops. From This Week in Agribusiness, Max reports that China is getting control of African Swine Fever which should boost demand for soybeans, but corn demand could be a short-term bump in buying. And Max shares that the big light display that had long been delighting residents in Dakota City, Iowa, has ended.

Midwest Digest is a twice-daily audio feature produced by Max Armstrong, offering news and commentary from across the Midwest.
