ZimmCast 706 – From Cattle to CIRB


ZimmCastHello and welcome to the ZimmCast.

Coming up on the Agriglogging Highway is The Ethanol Conference followed a week later by Commodity Classic. Both are in Orlando, FL. There are four more after these but with a little more in-between, ZimmComm World Headquarters time. But let’s look backward just a little.

This week’s program will start with cattle and end with CIRB. By that I mean a couple of my interviews from the Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show and then from the Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau Annual Meeting.

First up is Colin Woodall, CEO, NCBA, who provides an overview of the organization and how the 2023 convention and trade show has performed. Following Colin is Kent Bacus, Executive Director, Government Affairs, for NCBA who talks about export markets.

Moving on to the CIRB Annual Meeting you will hear from Jim Wiesemeyer, Farm Journal policy analyst, who provided his annual political update. And then Michael Torrey, Executive Director, CIRB, provides a wrap-up on this year’s event.

After working at five different conferences so far this year it feels more like pre-pandemic times seeing the participation, networking and getting down to business work. Numbers are good and growing even above last year. So, onward where we hope to find what is new in the world of agribusiness.

That’s the ZimmCast for now. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for listening.
