Hello ZimmComm Fans:

Chuck and Cindy are enjoying a break from the agriblogging highway and working with Clint and Caitlin to get them moved and in our new offices. It’s a great time to be an agriblogger and farm podcaster!

Looking ahead we want you to know of some sponsorship opportunities involving our custom brand of live event coverage. These include the 2016 IFAJ Congress in Bonn, Germany in July, the Ag Media Summit and InfoAg Conference. Of course we’re also available to cover your field day, company event or any other ideas you may have.

Our latest ZimmPoll found that over 60% of respondents have family that have been involved in agriculture from 5-10 generations to too many to count. That’s an impressive figure. Now we’re asking, “How concerned are you about feeding 9 billion people by 2050?” Demographers project we will have over 9 billion people to feed by 2050. Do you think this is a realistic prediction? If so, it opens a lot of opportunity for agriculture but also adds pressure to do so in a sustainable way. If not, then perhaps we don’t have too much to worry about. Just how concerned are you about #Feedingthe9?
