Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, May 17, 2022

Max Armstrong talks about stolen vehicles, planting progress, wheat condition, dairy operations and baby formula.

Emergency and city vehicles are being stolen.

Corn planting isn't quite half done, and is far behind average. Soybean planting is behind, but not as far as corn.

The winter wheat crop continues to get worse.

Some dairy operations will come to a hault.

A baby forumla plant will reopen, but could take a couple months before the product is back on shelves.
