Max Armstrong talks about President Trump tour tops, milk markets, butter labels and the cost of pickup trucks.

The president has a couple more stops on his tour, after his stop in Rochester, Minn., yesterday. He'll be in Topeka, Kan., tomorrow. He could make an ethanol announcement in Iowa next week.

Milk producers are looking for all the market they can get. 

The Butter Institute wants to see labels for non-butter substitute products reconsidered.

The price of pickup trucks has grown. The average price is more than $48,000, a 48% boost from 10 years ago.
