ZimmNews – Aug 30, 2013

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
It might have been hot at this week’s Farm Progress Show but thanks to new media tent sponsor, BASF, we kept our cool. The ZimmComm team set a record with five reporters on location counting our fall intern Kristyn Stidham and newcomer and “old” friend Leah Guffey! There’s a lot to see and hear on AgWired thanks to our sponsors, GROWMARK, New Holland & Bayer CropScience and Precision Pays thanks to our sponsors Ag Leader Technology, GROWMARK and John Deere. The ag media can find a growing list of photos and interviews available to them on AgNewsWire.com.
Now Chuck and Cindy are heading to Argentina for the 2013 International Federation of Agricultural Journalists Congress courtesy of long time sponsor Dupont Pioneer and Novus International. They’ll begin coverage after the kickoff reception on Sunday evening.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “What is your opinion on farm info graphics?”
Our poll results:
?· Love them, they are helpful 69%
?· Waste of energy 6%
?· Confusing 13%
?· Other 13%
It looks like the time spent creating these easy-to-use, quick-to-read infographics is worthwhile. Keep up the good work.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question “Why do you attend farm shows?” A lot of companies spend a lot of money promoting their products, answering questions and launching new products at trade shows, but we want to know why YOU go! Let us know.
