Not Out Of The Woods: Mississippi River levels are improving, but rain is still needed

Barge movement has been better, particularly south of St. Louis, but leaders at ag transport company CGB Enterprises say they are not out of the woods yet. They say current river levels will work for now but are cautious looking ahead just two weeks, saying the river needs sustained rain.
Despite all the challenges, they tell us no matter what happens along the Mississippi next year, they will still find a way to move products to their final destination.
