Hello ZimmComm Fans:

The ZimmComm team is coming off a big week in Kansas City. Between Chuck, Cindy, Jamie, and Kelly, they conducted over 80 interviews. It all started with the USFRA board meeting, the Barry Nelson Final Final party and the NAFB Convention. Look for these interviews to be featured throughout the ZimmComm news network over the next couple of weeks.

The team gets a break with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next week. We want to wish you an early Happy Holidays.

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, "Final decision time - who are you voting for?"
The polls have closed and Donald Trump is officially our President Elect. Many across the country are a bit surprised, yet our most recent ZimmPoll had Trump with a clear lead. The agricultural community predicted this win.
Here are the poll results:
  • Donald Trump - 56%
  • Hillary Clinton - 34%
  • Gary Johnson - 3%
  • Jill Stein - 0%
  • None of the above - 7%
Our new  ZimmPoll is live and asks the question, What will Trump presidency mean for ag?
The election is over - what now? NAFB hosted a agriculture  "Reaction to Election" panel highlighting insights from key agricultural leader opinions. No one has the exact answers, but the big question now is what will a Trump presidency mean for agriculture. What do you think?
