Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, June 16, 2022

Max Armstrong talks about a car vs. combine accident, Ohio planting progress and cost impacts, and reshares the story of a retiring Wisconsin ag teacher who was gifted a tractor.

A sheriff's deputy in Iowa was killed after his vehicle hit the tire on a combine.

Ohio farmers have gotten off to a normal start, statistically. However there are areas that only have half the crops planted.

The retired ag teacher in Wisconsin story has caught the attention of many of Max's Twitter followers. After students and coworkers found and restored a tractor the teacher's father had, they presented it to the teacher as a parting gift.
