The ZimmComm team wishes we could send some of the rain we’ve been receiving at our new world headquarters to the midwest. Our prayers are with all the people suffering from the heat and dry weather.
Chuck will get to visit some of that heat this week when he travels to Illinois for the Conservation Technology Information Center Indian Creek Watershed Field Tour. Then he moves to Iowa for a Wyffels Field Day and FMC Plot Tour. Look for his coverage on AgWired during the week when internet access and time allows.
Have you marked your calendar for the NAMA Fall Conference? It will be held September 25-26 in Minneapolis. The theme is “Fertile Ground, Forward Thinking.” Listen to NAMA President Beth Burgy talk about what’s different about the conference this year here.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “When do you think Congress will complete a Farm Bill?” Our poll results: Twenty-two percent were optimistic and said before Sept. 30, 2012; twenty-eight percent were a bit more hesitant but said before the end of this calendar year; and twenty-five percent said both next year and maybe never.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “How will Obamacare affect you and your business?” Some of the farm groups are split on the ruling, just as was the Supreme Court. But on a more personal/business level, how will this ruling affect you?
