ZimmNews – Aug 9, 2013

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
The ZimmComm team has been out and about this week. Cindy attended the Ag Media Summit and then traveled on to a BASF media event. Joanna attended the AgCareers.com Ag & Food HR Roundtable. Chuck was in Sturgis, SD at the annual Motorcycle Rally before traveling to Denver for the Cattle Industry Summer Conference where he is still working as the Beef Board Blogger. Pretty busy week in August!
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Do you think cellulosic ethanol can be commercialized?”
Our poll results:
· Almost There 33%
?· It Already Is 26%
?· Could Be Someday 25%?
· Just A Fantasy 11%?
· No Clue 3%
?· Other 2%
According to our latest ZimmPoll results, most people believe that cellulosic ethanol, which can be made from agricultural waste or non-food crops, is already or soon to be commercialized.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What is the biggest growth area for ag jobs?” The agriculture industry continues to grow creating thousands of new jobs. Which ag area do you feel supplies the most jobs? Let us know.
