ZimmNews – August 22, 2014

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
Perhaps you’ve noticed a lot of content on AgWired and related domains, Precision and AnimalAg There’s a good reason for that. It’s fall show time and the ZimmComm Team is covering a lot of them. This week Chuck took off for the 2015 John Deere Product Launch in Milwaukee. If you’d like to see what the floor show looked like as the new products were revealed to dealers then check out his video. There are also lots of photos from the event of course.
From there Chuck traveled to North Dakota to spend a little time with the New Holland Harvest Support Team and a special New Holland-sponsored viewing in Bismarck of The Great American Wheat Harvest, which is sponsored in part by AgWired.
Look for even more great content on the AgWired family of ag news websites next week as the team travels to Boone, IA for the Farm Progress Show!
We want to congratulate Carrie Mess, Mesa Dairy, for receiving the first ever Social Media Farmer of the Year Award presented by Food, Nutrition & Science and sponsored in part by AgWired.com. Better known as Dairy Carrie, she received the award after being nominated and judged by an industry panel. The award recognizes farmers who have incorporated social media, digital media and internet strategies to achieve their business objectives including growing revenue, sharing information for more effective farming practices, and promoting positive awareness of the industry.
We are looking for a fall intern to work with the ZimmComm Team on location. If you know of a student who might be interested please direct them to fill out this form for us.
