Hello ZimmComm Fans:
It’s hard to believe the school kids are back at it and we’re nearing the end of summer. For the ZimmComm Team that means activity ramps up to fever pitch! We’ve got a lot of the calendar over the next month so you’ll be seeing us out and about at places like the AgWorks User Conference, BIVI Swine Seminar, Farm Progress Show, Alltech Global Dairy and Beef, IFAJ Congress and more.
We are seeking applications for a fall intern. If you know of someone or could alert them to the opportunity please direct them to contact Chuck or Jamie.
Our latest ZimmPoll, sponsored by New Holland, asked the AgWired community, “I prefer to get my farm news from:
Here what we were told:
• Computer – 34%
• Mobile Phone – 24%
• Radio – 15%
• Magazine – 14%
• Tablet – 10%
• Other – 3%
There is no stopping the digital age, especially with reliable broadband becoming more and more available. What do you think of these results? Are you already excited about Apple and Samsung’s upcoming product announcements?
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, What’s your favorite way to eat peanut butter?
We had to ask this question after completing seven years of blogging for the Southern Peanut Farmers Federation. Chuck likes his on pancakes with maple syrup. Cindy’s new favorite is a chopped up grilled PBJ as topping on and ice cream sundae! Jamie says peanut butter cookies are the best. Let us know your favorite.
