ZimmNews – November 6, 2015

In Feature, ZimmNews by Talia

Hello ZimmComm Fans:

Many of your will be gathering in Kansas City, MO next week for the Livestock Publications Council Vision Event and/or the annual National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention. So will the ZimmComm team. We look forward to seeing you there courtesy of New Holland and FMC!

This week our founding AgNerd, Chuck, covered the annual John Deere, Develop with Deere event. Sixty nine companies were represented to work with John Deere on ideas for applications that would integrate with the MyJohnDeere API platform. You can find his coverage on our precision agriculture account: Precision.AgWired.com.

We have heard from so many farm and food companies that consumer perception of farming based on what they see/hear/read in the media is one of the biggest concerns to the future of the industry. Is this true though? Are we over-reacting? Our new ZimmPoll wants to know. The question: What’s mass media’s impact on consumer food opinion?

Here are some audio files from this week you might have missed from this week:

Elizabeth Winklosky, PA State FFA
Richard Fordyce, MO Dir. of Ag
Sen. Joni Ernst, WOTUS Disapproval
Pat Pinkston, John Deere, on Precision Planting acquisition
