Max Armstrong describes a mess on Interstate 51 in Illinois yesterday and the devastation left behind. Over 80 vehicles were involved in a pileup when high winds brought a soil storm onto the highway leaving many injured and some drivers and passengers dead.

AFBF President Zippy Duvall tells farmers there is an early expectation of lower revenues than last year and how producers need a clear understanding of the rules governing them.

Plus, cleanup is underway for a Wisconsin train derailment that leaked batteries, oxygen and paint containers into the Mississippi River and new information comes forth about the northeast Ohio train derailment.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
