Chuck Zimmerman

Here’s an item from the Illinois Corn Growers Daily Corn Industry Update that I just had to post and agree with. I like to say that I love soybeans and corn, especially after they’ve been processed by a tasty animal! It’s good to see corn growers openly acknowledging this. I know the soybean folks do and even have a special animal ag initiative.

This week I have a great opportunity to showcase how one of our Talking News Release clients, National Rural Electric Cooperatives Association (NRECA). They use us to distribute good, timely news information to radio reporters, especially from meetings like their just-completed Legislative Conference where they brought in over 3,200 members from around the country to learn about issues and lobby their congressmen.

Beef Day at the Missouri Capitol featured a proclamation from the governor (who didn’t show up in person) proclaiming May, Beef Month in Missouri. These kids were there to learn more about beef, see live cows and get their picture taken with Molly Moo, the cardboard cutout.
