ZimmNews – Nov. 30, 2012

Hello ZimmComm Fans:

This week Chuck got on the road with Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica for their 4th PRRS Area Regional Control & Elimination Seminar in Kansas City, MO. While he was in KC, MO he also attended the annual BCS Communications Holiday Party. Next week the ZimmComm team is back on the agriblogging highway with Chuck in Savanna, GA for the National Agricultural Aviation Association convention sponsored by BASF, Cindy in Chicago for the American Seed Trade Association CSS 2012 & Seed Expo while Jamie will be in Lexington, KY for the Alltech Global 500. That’s being out and about!

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, ” What gadget is on your Christmas wish list?”

Our poll results: Twenty-four percent said other; twenty percent said tablet; ten percent said wide screen TV; seven percent said desktop computer; three percent said smartphone; and three percent said notebook computer. Some of the things falling in the Other category include: Powerball Jackpot, camcorder, desktop hard drive, laser pointer, car and gun.

Chuck recently got his latest gadget – an iPad mini. He’s loving it.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “With harvest over what are your winter plans?” During the winter months, you may not see farmers out in the field but that doesn’t mean they’re not busy! So what will you be doing until next year’s planting season? Let us know!
