Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, May 12, 2022

Max Armstrong talks about the POTUS visit to an Illinois farm, hot and stormy weather, a high school fair postponed, and more.

President Joe Biden was in Illinois yesterday on the O'Connor farm. He talked about inflation, as well as a USDA grant program to boost domestic fertilizer.

The heat has been in areas this week where it was chilly most of the spring. With that heat has come storms, including in the Twin Cities metro.

The largest high school fair in the country in Michigan was postponed due to security concerns.

What do you think it takes to get a farm shop ready for the #POTUS and media?
