Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, June 4, 2020

Max Armstrong talks about first responders, Cargill, soybean sales and beaches in Door County, Wis.

What a week this has been for first responders. Firefighters in Chicago responded to 100 fires in 30 hours. A county sheriff in northwest Missouri died while en route to aid one of his deputies when his pickup truck collided with another vehicle. The sheriff did not have his seatbelt on.

For all the talk about Chinese getting further from us, soybeans deals are being booked. And even though it's unknown destinations, traders think it's likely headed to China.

Cargill says it will no longer issue public releases on quarterly earnings. It's the largest privately held company in the U.S.

Timing of reopening of some businesses damaged during protests in the wake of killing of George Floyd will depend on when windows can be replaced.

It will be a little more of challenge for beachgoers vacationing in Door County, Wis., this summer as flooding has eaten away at some of the shoreline.
