This week Chuck went cross country to Palm Desert, CA for the Agricultural Retailers Association Conference & Expo. He’s sharing stories on AgWired of course and there are lots of photos available too. The conference was held just about an hour from the terrorist tragedy that happened in San Bernardino, CA which really brought home how close the reach of these fanatics has become. Our prayers join with everyone else’s over the loss of so many lives.
Our latest ZimmPoll found out that a majority of respondents do not have a crisis communications plan for their agribusiness or farm. How about you and yours?
This weekend Jamie will be attending the North American PRRS Symposium with BIVI. Look for her stories on Animal.Agwired.com. Then Taylor and Cindy will be off to the annual ASTA 2015 CSS & Seed Expo in Chicago. Still more agriblogging and farm podcasting in 2015!
