Farm Progress America, April 4, 2022

Max Armstrong reports on a change in the rail industry that's impacting the grain and feed industry.

Max Armstrong talks about precision scheduled railroading focuses on the cars versus whole trains. Max explains how this push to manage cards takes precedent, but according to the National Grain and Feed Association says this new approach isn't working. Max says the car-focused approach limits grain deliveries to NGFA members. This car-focused approach has forced the grain industry to seek alternative approaches, raising costs.
