Farm Bureau Holds Meeting Delano Elected (Roanoke) Robert B. Delano has been elected as president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation at the organization's 61st annual meeting. Delano, of Warsaw in Richmond County. had previously served as president of the organization for 17 years and had been president of the American Farm Bureau for six years. Wayne Ashworth of Danville was elected by the voting delegates as vice president for the coming year. The primary purpose of the annual meeting is to establish Farm Bureau's legislative package for the coming year. The priority package, as determined by the Board of Directors, includes the following: Farm Bureau supports abolishing the state code section which requires a taxpayer to add to the federal adjusted income 30 percent of his accelerated cost recovery system deduction.

2 What To Expect In 1987 1987 will be another confusing year for agriculture. Some commodity areas will be less confusing than others. As long as we have heavy government involvement in the 10 of our so-called basic commodities the prices and predictions here will not be too difficult to predict. All prices however, will be static or less than they were in 1986. You will see very little movement in real prices when controls are in place by government. It is when there are unknowns that prices fluctuate. Frankly, I would much rather have market prices that react to demands rather than static prices. I will take my chances on the peaks in prices to carry me through the valleys. Our agricultural exports must improve if we are to see any strength in grain prices. We must remember nations only buy products if they need such products for their domestic markets. Some people seem to think countries buy products out of the kindness of their hearts. I think we all can understand the folly of ...

DECEMBER, 1986 Name Change FMITS To Improve Service The Virginia Farm Bureau Agricultural Finance and Taxation Service, formerly the Farm Management and Income Tax Service, has taken a more aggressive marketing stance to better inform Farm Bureau members of its complete range of financial services. As part of the marketing effort, a new, professionally designed brochure has been created detailing these services to prospective as well as current members. Topics discussed include Accounting Guidance, Tax Management and Planning, Estate Planning and the Annual Business Analysis. A newspaper ad promoting these services has also been developed. Because of the growing complexity of farm finances, Farm Bureau consultants will be strengthening their efforts to keep farmers up to date on changing tax laws and government regulations. They will be increasingly involved in attending financial seminars and will be offering free initial consultations on Agricultural Finance and Taxation Service. ...

6 Enjoying the holidays Three steps-know the goals, know the resources and make a plan- will help families find more time to enjoy the holiday season. "Start by deciding what is the meaning of the holiday for the family," said Ruth Lytton, Virginia Tech Extension specialist in family resource management. "For each, it is different. For some, the holiday is a time for elaborate parties and meals. For others, it is quiet time." Make sure all the family agrees on the goals, too, she said. Family meetings give children and adults a chance to talk about what they want, and how each will contribute toward doing it. "Sometimes this means a compromise," the specialist said. Families need to be realistic in setting their goals, she said. Some families used to expect that the wife should do all the cleaning, cooking, and shopping for gifts. In today's world, where wives are employed outside the home, the work should be shared with the husband and children, if all family members are going to e...

DECEMBER, 1986 FARMLAND PRESERVATION 101 We strongly believe in the American, private, competitive enterprise system in which property is privately owned, managed and operated for profit. Further, we believe in a competitive business environment in which supply and demand are the primary determinants of market prices, the use of productive resources and the distribution of output. Finally, we believe that individuals engaged in land use planning must recognize that private ownership of property is the cornerstone upon which this country has been built and the retention of these rights are essential to the preservation of individual rights which are guaranteed by the Constitution. We recommend that steps be taken to promote the conservation of farmland that we may provide for our present needs and the needs of future generations. LAND USE PLANNING 102 We support land use planning at the lowest level of government. SUNSET ZONING 103 We request the General Assembly to study the issue o...

8 Districts should be based on volume and production, and should be spelled out in the act in order that the producer can understand the system of representation before being called upon to cast his vote. We believe that when a referendum is conducted for any commodity checkoff, all producers who produced and sold the commodity in question should be properly notified by mail about the referendum. We support the present accounting system for Virginia commodity commissions. FEED GRAINS, SOYBEANS AND WHEAT 138 We support giving planted and considered planted acres credit for zero planting on wheat and feed grains to protect our base. More money should be channeled into research to determine new uses for wheat, soybeans and feed grains. We recommend that present state and federal standards on grain grades be maintained. If changed, proper and timely notification should be given so that farmers and grain dealers have the opportunity to adjust with the current crops. Seed coming into Virg...

DECEMBER, 1986 URANIUM 160 We support the present moratorium on uranium mining. ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS 161 We believe that businesses, industries and farmers who have to expend sums of money to prove they are meeting environmental regulations should be reimbursed their expenditure if they show that they were meeting the requirements before the government agency questioned their performance. GAME LAWS AND REGULATIONS, TRESPASS 162 We support a return to the trespass law of 1910. The present law which allows hunters to follow their dogs onto prohibited lands should be repealed. We favor a state assessment of a $1 big-game damage fee on each hunting license sold within the state. The maximum fund now allocated to each county under existing law should remain in effect. In the event a county exceeds its maximum allowed, those funds in excess of the maximum should be retained by the state to defray allowable damages as they occur in other political subdivisions. We favor a study and re...

10 RIGHT TO WORK 188 We support Virginia's "Right-To-Work" law and Section 14(b) of the "Taft-Hartley Act." FIELD SANITATION STANDARDS 189 We support adoption of a State Field Sanitation Standard using the Field Sanitation Task Force's guidelines. WELFARE 190 In an effort to reduce births to unwed mothers and subsequent welfare dependency, we recommend all aid to families with dependent children not be increased at the birth of a second illegitimate child. We recommend that the amount allotted to foster care agencies be decreased and the amount to foster parents be increased in order to encourage adoption. We support a study of the foster care system. We believe welfare programs should be reevaluated and revamped at the local, state and national levels to require: strict standards and investigations of welfare eligibility and greater efforts by social agencies to find gainful employment for welfare recipients. We recommend revision of the State Privacy Act to permit publication of t...

12 v < sill '* #~ » Farm Woman of Year Behind every good man there stands a good woman, and behind nearly every good farmer and his successful farm there is a multi-talented woman working to keep the farm family going. The Women's Committee of Virginia Farm Bureau has honored one of its own for outstanding contributions in those areas. A mother of three from Madison County, Mrs. Mildred Hale, was named Farm Woman of the year at the 61st Annual Meeting of the Virginia Farm Bureau.

Vol. 46, No. 2 AFBF Convention Farm Credit Policy Adopted At Meeting ANAHEIM, CALIF.--With Congress on the verge of dealing again with the Farm Credit System's financial troubles, delegates to the American Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting said the system should be given a "prompt infusion ' of federal funds as it's needed. At the same time, the delegates stressed that they are primarily concerned with protecting the rights and the stock of the system's farmer-borrowers. Along with the financial supports, they called for "full disclosure" of the system's financial condition; "protection of the value of member borrower stock;" and the "pursuit of meaningful and effective restructuring "of farmers" loans. The farm credit policy adopted by the 289 voting delegates also urged that a secondary market for farm mortgages be developed, similar to current ones, such as "Fannie Mae" and "Ginnie Mae," which resell packages of home mortgages to investors in the form of bonds.

FEBRUARY, 1987 Trade Protectionism Myths Cont. from page 2 Myth: Protectionism Lowers The Unemployment Rate While related to the previous argument, the unemployment claim is somewhat different. It is asserted that the unemployment in a number of American industries is the direct consequence of imports. However, most of the employment losses in particular industries have,in fact, been associated with either plant modernization efforts, in part to meet foreign and domestic competition (e.g. automobiles and textiles) and/or excessive wage scales associated with labor union power (e.g. steel and automobiles). In summary, rising unemployment in a number of these import sensitive industries has been more the result of productivity gains and excessive wage settlements than import competition. Support International Trading System U.S. agriculture, given its ability to competitively serve foreign markets and its dependence on exports, has an important vested interest in supporting a liberal ...

4 Virginia Tech Is Looking For A Few Good Men And Women BLACKSBURG-Like the Marines, Virginia Tech is looking for a few good men and women. The land-grant university is in the midst of recruiting students for its new agriculture technology program to begin September 1987. According to Dr. Gary L. Minish, associate dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and director of the ag tech program, the two-year program offers more than theory. "It's a technical training program where you learn by doing," he said. Andrew Smith, who has aided in the recruiting efforts, said the ag tech program is practical. "It's not just going into a classroom and memorizing things," he said. "It's going into a classroom, learning the techniques and going out and practicing them." For instance, in the animal agriculture option the students will not just study about embryo transfer "they will have an opportunity to do things like that," Minish said. Another strength in the program, Minish said, is...
