ZimmNews – March 1, 2013

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
It is another big week for the ZimmComm team. Chuck started the week at The Meat Conference in Nashville and from there he met up with Cindy at the Bayer CropScience Ag Issues Forum preceding Commodity Classic. Then Cindy attended the BASF Behind the Science event and on to Commodity Classic thanks to BASF and New Holland. While Commodity Classic is finishing up Chuck is working with Jamie Johansen and Cindy has flown cross country to San Diego for a swine vet conference courtesy of Boehringer Ingelheim. We just might be ready for a short break!
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Does warranty influence your decision to purchase new equipment?”
Our poll results: Almost all of you at eighty-seven percent said Yes, while thirteen percent said No. This poll certainly shows that warranty is a major consideration when shopping for new equipment!
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What are your spring planting intentions for corn?” The severe drought of 2012 may influence farmers to try something different this planting season. Will it affect how many acres of corn you plant for the 2013 crop? Let us know.
Here are some interviews you might have missed this week:
Richard Petty talks meat and ethanol at Meat Conference
Melvin & Patricia Cripe, Michigan, winners of New Holland Boomer 20 Tractor
Patrick Delaney, ASA, talks about record breaking Commodity Classic
