The ZimmComm team is back on the agriblogging highway with stops in San Antonio, Key West and Nashville. That’s an interesting mix. Cindy attended the last Beltwide Cotton Conferences (in the format that included a trade show) while Chuck was working with the NAMA Exec. Comm. on organizational business. From there he travels to Nashville for the American Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting. You can expect to see his coverage of that meeting starting this weekend.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “How do you feel about the fiscal cliff compromise?”
Our poll results: Forty-one percent said Sick of Congress; thirty-two percent said Disgusted; 15 percent said Disappointed; five percent said Pleased and Hopeful; and one percent said Thrilled. Looks like the majority of you are tired of hearing about Congress!
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What do you think is top story of 2012?” 2012 was a wild year for farmers. What do you think the top story was? We’re listing the top ones we’ve seen here and on other farm news sites like AgriMarketing.com. There certainly are more stories. Feel free to add your ideas if they’re not on the list here in comments or in comments on the poll.
Here are some interviews from the last week that you might have missed:
