Farm Futures Market Update

MORNING Midwest Digest, September 13, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about the USDA report yesterday and record-high yield prospects, McDonald's restaurant saturation, Mackinac Island tourism and a towing company loss.

The corn market shocker in the USDA report will mean larger supplies of corn for the world, and a lower season average price for U.S. growers. Record high yields are predicted for several states. 

A list of states with the greatest saturation of McDonald's restaurants was published. Many of them in the heartland of America. It's hardest to find them out east.

Mackinac Island's extravagant hotel is offering an extravagant package to tourists.

Chicago's most infamous towing company has had its license revoked.
