Grain markets saw a return surge of buying as hot, dry weather moves into the Northern Plains and Northwestern Corn Belt. That is causing us to put a weather premium back into this market. Also, mixed trade in livestock today with hogs setting new highs again. Mike Pearson, co-host of This Week in Agribusiness, joins us to discuss markets on today’s show!

Then, we talk with Jana Davidson of the Progressive Agriculture Foundation for our June safety message. This month we focus on summer safety around the home and farm as kids are out of school for the next couple of months.
