ZimmNews – January 16, 2015

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
Cindy is home from the 2015 American Farm Bureau Federation Convention. You can find all kinds of interviews and other content on AgWired and also aggregated onto AgNewsWire as well. She gets a break next week while Chuck heads to Ft. Worth for the National Biodiesel Conference where he’ll morph into the Biodiesel Blogger once again. Yep, we’re back into the season of conventions and meetings.
We were a little surprised at the results of our lastest ZimmPoll Even with a lot of concerns people have regarding human rights violations in Cuba an overwhelming 84% of respondents said the U.S. Ag Coalition for Cuba will benefit all aspects of agriculture. No respondents thought it a bad idea.
So, this week’s ZimmPoll goes another direction asking, Is China’s recent ban on imports of U.S. poultry & eggs justified? Let us know what you think.
Here are some interviews from this week you might have missed:
John Hoblick, Florida Farm Bureau President, talks next year’s AFBF convention
Jon Hegeman, AFBF YF&R Chair, talks about farming
Bob Stallman, AFBF President, on top issues for delegates
Dr. Bob Bruss, Nufarm, on cotton plant regulators
Navy Seal Commander Rorke Denver, thanks farmers & ranchers
