Hello ZimmComm Fans:
We hope you’ve been following the world @AgriBlogger as he moved from Boone, IA to Deauville, France and Aberdeen, Scotland. Now he’s looking ahead to next week’s NAMA Fall Conference in Chicago!
The ZimmComm Team is continuing to publish stories from several other recent events like the Farm Progress Show. You’ll find lots of great content with photos and interviews on AgWired!
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, How important is it to know about farming in other countries?
This might be the most one-sided poll we have every had. It seems, and we definitly don’t disagree, that having a global understanding of agriculture is crucial. We may not all be able to learn about them first-hand, but thats where ZimmComm helps you out!
Here are the poll results:
Very important, global economy – 91%
Not important, who cares – 4%
Somewhat, simply curious – 5%
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, Would you buy an Apple Watch?
Apple’s roll-out of a few clever and exciting new techie items has lead us to wonder if their new Apple Watch is something you plan on spending money on. It’s a no brainer that all Apple product enthusiasts will eventually be owning an iPhone 6, but do the product specs of the Apple Watch intrigue you enough to make the investment. Do you see it being a must have in years to come?
Speaking of Apple, the AgWired App has been updated in iOS. Install or update. Easiest way to check on what’s new in the world of agribusiness on your iOS device.
