Polar Express Snow Plow

I couldn’t resist posting a picture of this little guy from the NCBA trade show. Especially since New Holland is a client and we helped with their Polar Express movie promotion by sending a Talking News Release!

Customers Playing Games

The trade show here at the NCBA convention is huge. Producers have lots of opportunities to talk to company reps or here at the Novartis booth, they can compete in a computer quiz for prizes that are awarded each day to the 2 highest scorers.

Even The News Room Is Sponsored!

I know it’s not a very exciting picture but you can see how everything is sponsored. Reporters at the news center will leave this convention weighing several pounds more due to the large quantities of food bestowed upon them. Thursday’s breakfast included large steaks! After all we have to get our beef quota.

Booth Activity

The first stop was the Merial booth, where I spoke with Jim Gibb, Sr. Manager, Beef Segment Development about new dna testing products from Igenity. You can listen to our next audio interview here: ZimmComm Podcast. Later this week, new U. S. Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Johanns, will be making a speech. We’ll bring you audio from his remarks.
