Next week will be a busy week in Washington, DC. Cindy and Chuck will be there for National Ag Day Activities, the Agri-Pulse Ag & Food Policy Summit and American Coalition for Ethanol annual Fly-in. So this week's program starts out with Sara Wyant, Agri-Pulse, providing a preview of this year's Summit program which features several panels and lots of well known individuals who will be speaking to the topics.
After that you'll hear Jamie Johansen talking with Maeve Desmond, Alltech, during the Alltech Great Green Getaway in Ireland. Maeve talks about Alltech's founder, Dr. Pearse Lyons, who just recently passed away, and how he founded this amazing company.
In this week's program you'll get to hear the lates episode of the GROWMARK Podcast. GROWMARK has been a long term sponsor of the ZimmCast and we thought we'd feature one of their own podcasts.
Additionally, Chuck talks with Rob McLelland and Heidi Nelson of FLM Harvest about their new initiative called Ultimate Collaboration. Here's more:
A new initiative aims to spark the ultimate expression of cooperation among agricultural leaders in support of producer-funded checkoffs. Ultimate Collaboration will raise awareness of the positive impact checkoffs have on food and rural communities, and serve as a resource to farmers, program stakeholders, the general public and public officials.
It is probably the busiest week of the year for the ZimmComm Team. From the Bayer AgVocacy Forum to Commodity Classic to Pork Industry Forum to Farm and Gin Show and to American Association of Swine Veterinarians.
Lots of interviews, photos, videos and all of it can be found in our online virtual ag newsrooms on AgNewsWire.com.
In the program Chuck shares interviews with Cyndee Smiley, Media Relations Manager for John Deere Ag & Turf. Cyndee talks about her job and passion for agriculture.
Chuck also shares an interview with Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture, Ryan Quarles. Ryan was the only agricultural representative in a meeting with President Trump on the Infrastructure Rollout earlier in the week.
