ZimmNews – Feb 28, 2014

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
What a week it is for the ZimmComm Team. Bayer CropScience Ag Issues Forum, BASF Science Behind the Advanced Acre, Commodity Classic Mid-South Farm & Gin Show and BIVI Swine Health Seminar. Yeow! Burning up some agriblogging and farm podcasting miles. Keep your eye on AgWired and all the ZimmComm news network websites including AgNewsWire.com for lots of photos, audio interviews and video clips. Chuck’s ZimmGlass Project has been continuing as he uses the Google product during his coverage of these activities.
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “If available, would you put E15 or E85 in your vehicle?”
Although for different reasons, the majority of you said you would use E15 or E85 in your personal vehicle if it was available. It seems the availability is the question. When will we see more stations carrying different blends of ethanol beyond the Midwest?
Our poll results:
? Yes, if save money – 29%
? Yes, supports USA – 31%
? Maybe, need for info – 5%
? No, have concerns – 14%
? I already do – 21%
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What do you think about Chipotle’s Farmed & Dangerous?”
Chipotle is at it again. It seems their is no limit to their extreme marketing tactics. Many in the agriculture community have voiced their opinions via social media and other online outlets. Has that made a difference? Are we preaching to the choir or are our words only reaching deaf ears?\
