This week Chuck got to meet a new sponsor, O.H. Kruse Grain & Milling. The company held it’s first ever dealer appreciation day at the International AgriCenter facilities in Tulare, CA and he was on the scene taking photos and conducting interviews. This was a fantastic event for the company and its customers. We hope to visit O.H. Kruse again!
While Chuck was in California, Jamie Johansen was in Minneapolis for the 2012 Export Exchange, courtesy of our long time sponsor, the Renewable Fuels Association. You can find her photos and interviews mostly on Domestic Fuel.com.
Hopefully you’ve booked the ZimmComm team to your event in 2013. Right????
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Have our efforts to educate consumers about agriculture been successful?”
Our poll results: No one said Yes, real improvement; fifty-two percent said Yes, but long way to go; thirty-five percent said No, minimal impact; three percent said No, no impact; and ten percent said Waste of time. It looks like many believe there’s room for improvement and our work is far from being done.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “How important will rural vote be in election?” It is a challenging time in agriculture for thousands of farmers and ranchers across the country. As the rural population goes to the poll booth to cast their vote for the candidate they believe supports farmers and ranchers, how important do you think their votes are? Let us know.
And remember, Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Go cast your vote!
