Generations of Family Farming

Talia Goes

Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “Does celebrity media attention sway your purchasing/listening/watching decisions? (e.g. Carrie Underwood supporting HSUS)”

Our poll results: Sixty-four percent said No, sixteen percent said Yes, eleven percent said Carrie Underwood Who, seven percent said Depends on the Celebrity, and two percent said Other. It looks like our audience doesn’t make decisions based on what media coverage of so called “celebrities.” How about you? Do you think differently? Let us know.

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “How many generations are you removed from the farm?” With fewer and larger farms in the United States, not as many people are involved in production agriculture as 40 years ago. What is your family connection to farming? Let us know.

ZimmPoll is sponsored by New Holland Agriculture.

  1. Although I’m not influenced in a positive way to buy a product or service promoted by a celebrity, I do tend to avoid those promoted by celebrities who abuse their status by taking the bully pulpit for HSUS, banning horse slaughter and other lightning rod issues. I haven’t paid for a Meryl Streep movie since she testified against the use of PGRs in apples in the 1980s. Currently, I now choose to avoid Budget rental cars because the current spokesman supported HSUS…and I most definitely will not buy a Carrie Underwood album!!!! An eccentric position? Likely, but I feel better for it!
