ZimmNews – April 12, 2013

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
Happy week before the national Agri-Marketing Conference! Next week Chuck & Cindy will be in Kansas City attending the conference with a ZimmComm exhibit in the Connection Point. We will see you from there and you can also follow coverage on AgWired.com.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “How do you combat social media overload?” We live in a new media world where we can communicate instantly with one person or the whole world. Does it ever bother you? Do you have to take a break from it all?
Our poll results: Twenty-five percent said Focus On 1 or 2 Social Networks, twenty-three percent said Physically Talk To People, thirteen percent Turn Devices Off For a While, ten percent Don’t Get Overloaded, eight percent Do Farm Chores and said Overload, What Overload?, five percent Set Time Limits, Read a Book, and Other. Based on poll results, focusing on one or two social media networks rather than all of them helps most people keep the chaos at ease.
Our new ZimPoll is now live and asks the question, “Have you started spring planting?” The weather has been less than predictable over the last month, this time last year many of you were already in the fields. Has it delayed your spring planting date? Let us know.
Here are some interviews from this week you might have missed:
• Elanco investment in China Animal Health Care press conference
• Mary Kay Thatcher, AFBF, on Farm Bill plan
• Dan Misener, Misener Family Harvesters, on Great American Wheat Harvest
• Growth Energy Washington, DC press conference
