Max Armstrong shares how a gender reveal party is tagged as the cause of one of the big fires tearing through California; and Max remembers two in Iowa that went bad. From This Week in Agribusiness, the designation of 18 Iowa counties as disaster areas gives farmers in the region access to low-interest loans. Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the designation as he toured Iowa look at damage from the derecho. And there's news of potential for higher hog profits, but farmers must manage production to benefit. And two counties in Minnesota are attempting to bring bison back to prairielands.
