ZimmNews – December 5, 2014

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
The end is near for 2014 but the ZimmComm Team is not ready for the holiday celebration just yet. This week Chuck went to New Orleans and covered the Agricultural Retailers Association Annual Convention & Expo You can find his stories on AgWired with more to come. Jamie Johansen is on her way to Chicago for the BIVI PRRS Seminar. Then Cindy and Leah will be off to Chicago early next week for the ASTA CSS 2014 & Seed Expo.
Chuck is starting a regular AgGadget Review column on AgWired with the serious AgNerd in mind. He’s looking for a sponsor and is trying to come up with a creative name for it. If you have an idea for him on either of these please let him know by the end of next week. Anyone who submits a name idea will be entered to win a prize from the ZimmComm AgNerd stash!
Chuck and Cindy are thankful for all the well wishes they received when they took some time to celebrate their daughter Caitlin’s wedding to Clint Underwood.
As we near the end of the year our Congress is once again considering a package of tax breaks for businesses and individuals. These include ones that have to be renewed instead of being made permanent. Take our new ZimmPoll to let us know what you think Congress should do.
