ZimmNews – May 3, 2013

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
This week our Jamie Johansen has been to the Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit courtesy of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the National Pork Producers Council. Her coverage is appearing on AgWired.com. After having a break from the agriblogging highway things will kick into high gear next week when Chuck heads to New Orleans to participate in a panel for the Farm Credit Idea Share 2013. We’ll continue to see you out and about! BTW. If you don’t have us on your schedule please let Chuck or Dave know.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question “Does celebrity media attention sway your purchasing/listening/watching decisions? (e.g. Carrie Underwood supporting HSUS)”
Our poll results: Sixty-four percent said No, sixteen percent said Yes, eleven percent said Carrie Underwood Who, seven percent said Depends on the Celebrity, and two percent said Other. It looks like our audience doesn’t make decisions based on what media coverage of so called “celebrities.” How about you? Do you think differently? Let us know.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question,How many generations are you removed from the farm? With fewer and larger farms in the United States, not as many people are involved in production agriculture as 40 years ago. What is your family connection to farming? Let us know.
Here are some audio files from this week you might have missed. Don’t forget to check out AgNewsWire for more each week.
