Midwest Digest August 29, 2018

In today's Midwest Digest, we learn what to expect at the Farm Progress Show, how Indiana Hoosiers are fighting brain injuries and what pheasant hunters can expect in two states this season.

Visitors at the Farm Progress Show can expect to hear a lot about former Iowa Agriculture Secretary Dale Cochran and his legacy. Plus, a coroner in Grand Rapids, Mich. is requesting half a million dollars more this year to cover the costs of opioid-related deaths. And the Indiana Hoosiers are doing their best to fight brain injuries. The team invested $130,000 in new helmets to stop brain injuries for the 100-plus players. Check out what else today's Midwest Digest has in it.
