ZimmNews – Mar 7, 2014

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
The ZimmComm Team is in post-Commodity Classic Recovery Mode this week and working on lots of interviews and stories. This week Chuck headed to the west coast for some Operation Blue Force in the field training with New Holland. Wearing his ZimmGlass he learned how to operate T8 and T9 tractors and will be sharing video from that experience on the ZimmComm News Network.
Be sure you check out AgNewsWire links to stories and audio from Classic and the BASF and Bayer media events – we added lots more this week. Also still finishing up the Boehringer Ingelheim Swine Vet event in Dallas and the Farm & Gin Show. We have been busy!
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “What do you think about Chipotle’s Farmed & Dangerous?”
An overwhelming majority said they have boycotted Chipotle and we are proud to say we fit into that group. We also believe Chipotle should be ashamed of how they are portraying farmers. Thank you to those in the agricultural community who have made a stand against this self-righteous restaurant chain and joined the fight to tell agriculture’s story.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What’s your favorite fish?”
Now that we’re in the Lenten season and fish fry-days are ramping up, we want to know how you like to eat fish – if at all!
Here’s are some interviews from this week you might have missed:
Laurie Adams, Pollinator Partnerships, on bee health
Anna Mullins, The Cotton Museum, on their work
Farmland Movie Press Conference
Ron Milby, GROWMARK, on John Deere data collaboration
Of course there are many more we’ve published this week.
