MIDDAY Midwest Digest, Jan. 16, 2019

Max Armstrong talks about the USDA recalling 2,500 workers for a three-day window, and pays tribute to a longtime farm broadcaster from Iowa.

The USDA is recalling workers while the shutdown continues to help process government payments made on or before Dec. 31. However, it's for only a 3-day window. 

A funeral service will be held tomorrow for a longtime farm broadcaster.
