Ways Ag Can Add Jobs To Economy

Chuck ZimmermanZimmPoll

Well, I guess our latest ZimmPoll didn’t excite anyone judging by the low response. With jobs all the rage in the political scene maybe you’re burned out on the word? Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “What is best for ag to add jobs to the economy?” 46% said All of the above to our choices. We also had 24% choose Support development of next generation biofuels; 18% choose Invest in rural economic development; 8% choose Pass FTAs with Colombia, Panama and Korea and 4% choose None of the above. I guess we’ll see what happens as the budget and farm bill debates continue to unfold.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live. We’re asking the question, “Can farmers effectively reach out to consumers with social media?” Seems like a timely questions with tomorrow’s The Food Dialogues about to take place. A USFRA program that will be driven by social media. You probably know where I come down on this. But with all our efforts, are we “reaching” consumers? What do you think? Feel free to comment and take our poll.
