The 2012 Agri-Marketing Conference was fantastic and the highest attended since in a decade. If you missed it you really ought to check out our photos and coverage to see what you missed. You might especially enjoy the Brownfield Red Solo Cup Dancers, for example. It was a great time seeing so many of our friends and clients. We hope to see you at next year’s conference which will be in Kansas City again before moving to Jacksonville, FL in 2014.
Cindy just returned from a New Holland media event at the company North American headquarters in PA. She took a lot of great photos and will be posting stories during the next week. We really appreciate our long standing relationship with New Holland and all their support!
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Would you be willing to donate the proceeds from one acre of your farm to help your local food bank?” Apparently we have some very generous farmers out there since 61% said Yes and 39% said No. Of course they may be many areas that don’t even have a local food bank too. We don’t know. But we sure appreciate everyone who participated!
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “With all of the discussion on projected corn acres this year, how many acres of corn do you expect to plant this year?” So how about it corn growers? We wonder how many will grow corn for the first time this year too. Should be interesting. Let your corn growing friends and neighbors to know we’d like to know what they plan and remember this is an anonymous poll! Use this link to share.
