Farm Progress America, June 30, 2020

Max Armstrong talks about how changing food demand has hit one commodity

Max Armstrong looks at a continued food supply challenge due to COVID-19 – a shortage of butter. Beth Ford, CEO, Land O'Lakes, shares how the changing demand picture in the grocery store has even reduced the varieties of butter the cooperative produces. Ford shares that they've not been able to store butter for the winter. And this year's sales will hit a new record.

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.
