Hello ZimmComm Fans:

This week our Jamie Johansen took to the agriblogging highway to cover the annual Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit This year the event was held in Kansas City, MO. Special thanks go out to Elanco for sponsoring our coverage of the event! You can find Jamie’s stories on Animal.AgWired.com.

According to our latest ZimmPoll a lot of people are expecting the problems with the current high path avian flu outbreak to have a big impact on exports. With the growing number of flocks being found infected there will be domestic impact too.

Our new ZimmPoll asks, What technology is most responsible for rapid planting progress? We had a huge jump in corn acreage planted in just one week. What technologies do you think are making this possible?

Here’s some audio from this week you might have missed:
