It’s a busy week for news releases, especially Talking News Releases. Yesterday afternoon Pioneer Hi-Bred was able to announce in conjunction with Dow AgroSciences that they’ve received U. S. regulatory approvals for the Herculex RW rootworm protection trait in 2006.
Cotton growers got some good news from Syngenta today. To announce it they used our Talking News Release service.
I just have to post this here on AgWired since I really like bagpipes. My sister played them for our high school “Kiltie Band.”
While I was in the media room here at World Dairy Expo a little while ago I found out about next year’s “theme”. It’s already designed and they were providing us with posters. So here’s your first look at next year’s theme – Dairy Central. Let me know what you think!
CornTalk, a weekly program for the Missouri Corn Growers Association, features an interview with the CEO, Gary Marshall. Gary talks about added value – and how it is benefiting Missouri corn growers. Last week USDA Rural Development announced the awarding of grant assistance under the Value Added Producer Grant program, and Missouri received more funding than any other single state.
This week I’m off to World Dairy Expo and will be blogging it here and even more frequently on World Dairy Diary. So the ZimmCast this week features an interview with one of World Dairy Diary and that’s Qualisoy. I interviewed Kent Gronlie, a North Dakota soybean grower. He’s on the Qualisoy board and is also Domestic Marketing Committe chairman for the United Soybean Board. Kent talks about what Qualisoy is all about and how why they decided to get involved in World Dairy Expo this year.
What kind of public relations people would we be if we didn’t do a talking news release about our own project eh? So of course we sent one out on World Dairy Diary, our very own farm show blog and the “Official blog of World Dairy Expo.” I’ll be posting here on AgWired from Expo next week but you can already see and hear plenty on World Dairy Diary!
When it was time to get the word out this week about a Missouri Beef Industry Council-sponsored Chili Cookoff to benefit a regional food bank the obvious thing to do was send out a Talking News Release!
This week’s MBIC report from the Missouri Beef Industy Council is all about how the organization is involved in a number of events this week, including “Shape Up Missouri,” the “Working Women’s Holiday Show” and the “Regional Cardiovascular Health Conference.” MBIC’s director of consumer information, Alane Lidolph tells us all about them in this week’s report.
