Just in time for the 2012 National Farm Machinery Show, our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, "How do you think farm equipment sales will do this year compared to last?" Things are looking bright for exhibitors at the show since 48% said Higher. However, 34% said Lower and 18% said Same. That seems like a positive outlook. What do you think?
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, "What's the next "big" thing in ag comm/social media?" Chuck posed this question last week and got quite a few responses. Here's your chance to weigh in on the subject. If you have a different choice please feel free to leave a comment.
Here are some interviews you might have missed this week:
