Max Armstrong talks floods, high water and barge grain traffic challenges

Max Armstrong talks about the challenge floods have created for moving grain down the river. Max offers a look at hindered barge traffic on the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. Even the Chicago Mercantile Exchange put force majeure into effect because grain couldn’t be delivered for contracts.
