Steve Alexander fills in for Max Armstrong and talks about National Agriculture Day. (audio)

A belated Happy Ag Day to those involved in agriculture. There was White House proclamation in honor of National Ag Day. It was delivered to USDA by Vice President Mike Pence. Max Armstrong hosted Q-and-A at National Press Club with Sonny Perdue.

Four of top 5 states in ag exports are in the Midwest. A combined $32 billion. Reminder we don’t have new NAFTA agreement and as Trump prepares to announce a punitive package of tariffs for China.
