Our last ZimmPoll asked the question, ” How should farmers respond to critical documentaries such as Food Inc.?” It’s not an easy question to answer really. Here’s what our poll results show. 45% said to Let their own actions shape their reputation, 43% said Promote ag through social media, 8% said Be informed but don’t initiate discussion and 3% said Ignore it, it will go away. Well, we know it’s not going away. What else can be done when faced with these types of attacks?
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “What causes higher food prices?” Let us know what you think and thanks your your participation.
And if you have any questions you want to suggest for future ZimmPolls please let us know.
ZimmPoll is sponsored by Rhea+Kaiser, a full-service advertising/public relations agency.

I don’t think going on defense is the way to go. We’ll be drowned about by the more numerous loud, and often not totally informed voices out there. We have to be in front of the issues and show the non-farm public what it is we do everyday. At the same time, we can’t blindly think everything the industry does is perfect. Don’t be afraid to question things within in your own industry.
