ZimmNews – Dec. 14, 2012

Hello ZimmComm Fans:

The ZimmComm team is enjoying some time away from the agriblogging highway. However, team member Jamie Johansen did attend the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association and Missouri Beef Industry Council annual meeting this week. We’ve still got more interviews to share from recent activities and we’ll also report on what we see and hear that you might be interested in. So don’t go away. There will be a lot to share over the holidays.

Looking ahead to 2013, our calendar keeps getting places and events added to it. Is your event on there? Or perhaps you’d like to sponsor our coverage of an industry event. The new ZimmComm Media Kit is now available (pdf). Feel free to download and add us to your media/marketing mix. Thank you.

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, ” What will expiring biotech patents mean for agriculture?”

Our poll results: fifty-two percent said more options; twenty-one percent said don’t know enough about it; fourteen percent said export concerns; ten percent said nothing and three percent said other.

Learn more about this issue from Cindy’s coverage of last week’s ASTA CSS in Chicago.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “How do you plan to travel this holiday?” The price of fuel and a plane ticket usually increases around the holiday, so will that change how you travel this year? Or does it really not matter – you’re getting there the quickest way possible! Let us know.

Here are some interviews from this week you might have missed:
Dan Kurdys, Asgrow, on Asgrow 4P System and the new agSeedSelect app
Peter Innes, Chairman/CEO of Becker Underwood & now Global Senior Advisor to the BASF Crop Protection division
Dr. Eric Moore, Merck Animal Health, on BRD in cattle
Steve Elliott, Alltech, beef discussion dinner at Global 500
