Audio-Farm Progress America, January 13, 2023

Max Armstrong explores the changes in ways grain moves from farm to market.

Max Armstrong shares a look at different ways that grain gets moved from covered hopper cars to day, to box cars in the past. There is also the work by the DeLong Company in Wisconsin to put grain in shipping containers, a first for the industry. The days of using box cars to load grain may be over, thanks to those hoppers, but shipping containers are still used today to move product overseas.

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.
