ZimmNews – March 6, 2015

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
Ready for spring? We sure are. Chuck will be attending National Ag Day Activities as the official photographer again this year with support from our sponsor GROWMARK. That is coming up soon!
The ZimmComm team has been very busy this week posting stories from all the events we’ve covered in the last couple weeks. Remember that you can always go to AgNewsWire.com to see aggregated content links from these events.
A very clear majority of respondents (75%) to our latest ZimmPoll disagreed with the new government control over the internet. It is known as net neutrality but is actually a lengthy set of regulations sent to the FCC by the Obama Administration which was voted in last week.
With trade being a hot topic in agriculture right now our new ZimmPoll is asking, Should Congress grant TPA? Let us know what you think.
We want to issue a big shoutout of congratulations to Paul Redhage for being selected as NAMA’s Marketer of the Year and to Clint Lewis, Zoetis, for being selected as NAMA Agribusiness Leader of the Year We look forward to seeing them at the April National Agri-Marketing Conference in Kansas City. If you are attending please stop by our Connection Point booth and say hello!
