February 1994 Virginia influences national approval of environmental policies By GREG HICKS VFBF Communications Director FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla.—To continue rJpaning up the land and water, farmers should have the benefit of government incentives, and they should not be harassed by lawsuits for unintentionally polluting in the past. Virginia Farm Bureau's eight voting delegates made these points to their fellow national leaders during policy setting at the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention Jan. 12. Specifically, Virginia's delegation said that incentives for such environmental techniques as cover crops must be reinstated, and that reauthorization of the Clean Water Act should not include permissive lawsuits for past water violations. Thanks to Virginia's advice, both amendments were approved by the AFBF voting delegates. Virginia voting delegates included VFBF President C. Wayne Ashworth of Pittsylvania County, VFBF Vice President Bruce Hiatt of Carroll County, Harold Ar...

6 Some soybean growers believe checkoff is vital By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor DINWIDDIE—For at least one Virginia soybean grower, the Soybean Promotion and Research Checkoff is well worth the money. "I support the checkoff all the way," said Alvin Blaha, who grows 425 acres of soybeans in Dinwiddie County. "I think the national checkoff program is a very vital part of the soybean industry." But some farmers are not so sure. After two years of operation, the national soybean checkoff is up for renewal. On Feb. 9, soybean growers across the country will vote on whether to continue the checkoff', directed by 63 farmer-members of the United Soybean Board. During a national referendum, "growers will be able to cast their votes at county Extension offices, or cast absentee ballots by mail," said Harold Phillips, USB chairman and a soybean grower from Stevenson, Ala. "The way it looks now, seven of 10 soybean growers approve of how the USB goes about its business of planning and ...

February 1994 Youth at fair leave with college money RICHMOND—Donnie Coleman was one of several youths who left the 1993 State Fair of Virginia with more than a stuffed animal or too much cotton candy. Coleman and other participants in the fair's youth scholarship competitions are leaving with money for college. Atlantic Rural Exposition, the private, non-profit parent company of the State Fair of Virginia, began awarding scholarships in 1989 and, to date, 150 students have received more than $119,000. In 1993, the fair gave more than $19,000 to 39 young people for their achievements at the fair. The scholarship program serves as an incentive for students to become involved in an agricultural project while earning money for college. It currently benefits 4-H and FFA youth who participate in beef, dairy, forestry, horticulture, poultry, sheep, swine and art projects at the fair. Coleman was a winner in the art competition. "It is important that young people continue their involvement...

Farm Bureau Vol 53, No. 2 Farmers should get familiar with new EPA standard By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor RICHMOND —Farmers should get to know the Environmental Protection Agency's new Worker Protection Standard before it takes effect April 15. "I'd just like to stress that if you're not aware of the Worker Protection Standard, make it a priority to become aware," said Virginia Farm Bureau Safety Coordinator Bruce Stone. "The important thing is not to delay," Stone added. "Farmers need to understand the guidelines and meet them." Fearing that farmers wouldn't have enough time to do either, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, as well as others, tried to convince the EPA to delay implementation of the standard until 1995. Despite those attempts, the new law will take effect mid-April. 'It's going to happen and farmers need to be prepared," Stone added. The new law, which has been more than eight years in the making, is designed to protect agricultura...

2 Conference proves grass-roots representation is growing Our grass-roots representation is growing. The 89 county leaders who participated Feb. 7 in American Farm Bureau's 1994 National Leadership Conference is proof in the pudding. In the three years since we began transmitting this informa-tion-packed teleconference, our Virginia representation has grown from 15 participants the first year to 60 in 1993 to 89 in 1994. This conference illustrates the growing interest in national affairs by our volunteer leaders, who realize that being involved in issues that impact their daily lives is the only sure way to get positive results. During the conference, we learned more about everything from the 1995 Farm Bill to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's proposed reorganization. But the issues that seemed to hit home the hardest were those focusing on the intrusions of government regulations into the right of property owners. At least three of the issues discussed centered around private p...

March 1994 YF conference includes hoe-down and low-down on various topics BLACKSBURG—When they weren't at the hoe-down, young farmers attending this year's conference were getting the low-down on media relations, estate planning and the two-year ag tech program. The 1994 Young Farmer Leadership Conference kicked off Jan. 28 with a committee meeting, followed by a reception. At the reception, a Virginia Farm Bureau employee, Barry Light, taught the young farmers several country line dances in preparation for a barn dance the following night. Saturday's workshops included one on estate planning by Dr. Leon Greyer, ag economics professor at Virginia Tech. And another, put on by Farm Bureau Communications Department Director Greg Hicks and communications employees Norm Hyde and Kathy Dixon, taught the group how to handle the media. The media relations workshop centered around a series of skits demonstrating the right and wrong ways to deal with the media. "Once you understand how the pr...

8 Former state, national president discusses Farm Bureau's influence From AFBF Reports WARSAW—During Robert Delano's six years as American Farm Bureau Federation president, from 1980-1986, agriculture was confronted with many difficult issues. The U.S. was in the midst of an embargo on grain sales to the Soviet Union, inflation was high, and interest rates had skyrocketed to nearly 20 percent. And, in the mid-1980s, a severe agricultural crisis hit, focusing worldwide attention on the nation's farmers. At the time, Delano recalls, he was criticized for denying the fact that all of agriculture was suffering in the crisis. That is a belief he still holds. "Emotion played pretty heavily in it," he says, "particularly for those farmers who had borrowed heavily, who had bought land and all of a sudden a crunch came, (declining commodity prices) and they found they had incurred more debt than they could service." Delano said many people were looking for targets to blame the crisis on. Som...

March 1994 Proposed USDA budget could hurt Virginia's peanut growers By NORM HYDE VFBF Broadcast Editor RICHMOND —President Clinton's proposed 1994-95 budget for the U.S. Department of Agriculture focuses more funding on food, nutrition and food safety programs and less on traditional crop research. That could really hurt Virginia's 3,000 peanut growers.

March 1994 Members praise Farm Bureau's handling of fire claim By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor LAHORE—A commercial fire claim handled in the ordinary Farm Bureau way is getting extraordinary praise from the people affected by the blaze. Parishioners of Macedonia Christian Church in Orange County, which was gutted by a fire last September, are singing the praises of the Virginia Farm Bureau and its claims staff. "Farm Bureau has been very helpful and truthful and honest," said Evelyn Woolfolk, clerk of the church. "Without Farm Bureau, we never would have been able to rebuild." Ms. Woolfolk said that after the fire, the Orange County Claims Representative Cole Byers told church members how much money they would receive for the contents and structure of the church. "And they gave us what they said they would without any hassle. "It's good when you have a reliable company," Ms. Woolfolk added. Farm Bureau employees say that they were simply doing their job.
