Hello ZimmComm Fans:

Our very own @FarmPodcaster covered the annual American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting this week in Orlando and watched a new Presidential election. While she was there the @AgriBlogger went on location for his first ever Potato Expo in Las Vegas. He now appreciates one of his favorite vegetables even more but things got a little strange with the Nufarm Zebra named Chip You’ll have to read his coverage to find out why. He’ll be off to Indianapolis next week for the Soil Health Summit.

A lot of you are foodies so our new ZimmPoll wants your feedback on the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Let us know what you think.
