Vol 53, No. 10 Saving money is the name of VFB investigators' game By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor Clad in navy coveralls and tan gloves, Frank Dunton diligently shoveled through the remains of a house fire, looking for money. He wasn't looking for coins or dollar bills, however. He was searching for the cause of the fire. If he could prove the fire was due to product failure, then Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company, or VFBMIC, would recoup the claim amount —ultimately saving the company money. Or, if he could prove the fire was set intentionally by the policyholder, then VFBMIC could deny the claim, also saving itself money. On just about any given day, you can find Dunton and Butch Fuzy trying to save the VFBMIC money. Dunton, manager of Farm Bureau's Special Investigations Unit, and Fuzy, an investigator for the SIU, spend much of their time investigating suspicious claims. "We're trying to reduce the amount of money the company pays out," Dunton said. "Approxim...

2 World's most inexpensive meal from U.S. food, study shows A recent market basket survey conducted by the American Farm Bureau Federation is remarkable: not because of the prices paid for 16 popular grocery store items, but for how little prices have changed for those items during the past five years. When AFBF began tracking prices in 1989, the total cost for the 16 items—from chicken and eggs to milk, flour and oil—came to $28.50. Today those same items are available for $30.39. That is an increase of just 6.6 percent in five years. Now if you want a real shock, you might try shopping for some of those same items in stores in Tokyo, Paris, Rome, Seoul, Singapore and Stockholm. A chart in Agricultural Trade Highlights from January 1993 shows prices for 15 standard items in these world capitals, converted to their dollar equivalents and compared to prices in Washington, D.C.

December 1994/ January 1995 New Town & Country Insurance Co. worth the long wait By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor RICHMOND—After 18 months of waiting, the Virginia Farm Bureau Town & Country Insurance Company will finally be open for business. "We're excited about the new company," said Gary Helton, director of Market Research & Development for the Virginia Farm Bureau. "It's been a long process." But, he thinks, one that will be worth the wait. The Virginia Bureau of Insurance recently ranked the state's top 50 auto insurance companies, and Virginia Farm Calmer weather improves insurance company's condition RICHMOND —Since 1994's disastrous weather has subsided, the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company's financial situation has improved dramatically.

December 1994/ January 1995 Farm Bureau hopes to improve safety with expanded child seat program By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor RICHMOND—Every year, children die unnecessarily in car crashes. In 1993,1,000 children under the age of 5 were killed in auto accidents, according to the National Safety Council's 1994 edition of Accident Facts. But 71 percent of those deaths could have been prevented with properly used child restraint seats, the publication said. "We are firm believers in child restraint seats and their ability to save lives," said Virginia Farm Bureau Safety Coordinator Bruce Stone. "And we want all of our members to use child restraint seats for their children or grandchildren." Farm Bureau members don't have a good excuse not to use child safety seats. The organization has offered the Child Saver Program since 1989, where members can buy a Cosco convertible child safety seat for only $20. Farm Bureau subsidizes the remaining cost of the seat, which retails for $...

But the poultry industry, and Virginia agriculture in general, need more help in order to thrive, according to James Keeler, CEO of WLR.

C-2 Virginia Tech student crowned 1995 Miss Virginia Farm Bureau By REBECCA COLNAR VFBF County Communications Specialist RICHMOND—Amanda Dawn Sink, daughter of Louis and Gloria Sink of Chatham, was crowned Miss Virginia Farm Bureau 1995 during Family Night Nov. 28 at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 69th Annual Convention. In her acceptance speech, Ms. Sink stressed the importance of women taking an aggressive role in agriculture. "Women need to move ahead in agriculture, especially in agribusiness," said the Virginia Tech student. Td like to see women involved on the corporate level in agriculture." She also expressed concern about the negative attitude of the news media toward agriculture. "All that makes the news is someone's conception about a pesticide being harmful, but they never talk about the positive aspects of agriculture. I'd like to see reporters do a lot more on-site reporting so that they can really see what farming is actually like," she said. Ms. Sink added tha...

C-4 'Smart farmers' named Young Farmers of the Year By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor Richmond—Keith and Katie Harris are smart farmers. And that's what led judges to choose them as Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 1994 Young Farmers of the Year. "I was impressed with the large amount of land they farm and the lack of part-time and seasonal farm workers they have," said Robins Buck, one of the contest judges. "They farm smart," added Buck, manager of the Office of Agriculture Diversification, Aquaculture & Fairs Support for the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Buck said he was also impressed with Keith Harris' leadership skills, mentioning one specific example. Harris generated a nutrient management plan for the family farm and also helped a half dozen of his neighbors with their plans. "He is [a good] representative of the young grain and livestock farmers in the state," Buck said. The couple was named 1994 Young Farmers of the Year in Jul...

December 1994/ January 1995 Holiday hams —full of nutrition and flavor, not fat Ever since the days of the first settlers, ham has been a holiday tradition. Besides being the festive focus of holiday meals, ham is a very nutrient-dense meat — meaning it offers many nutrients for relatively few calories. For a 3-ounce cooked serving, ham has only 140 calories, 6 grams of fat and is packed with B vitamins, iron and protein. Although fresh pork is naturally low in sodium, sodium compounds are added to ham during the curing process. Three ounces of cured ham can have 1,000-1,500 milligrams of sodium, about half the recommended daily limit for an adult. If you are limiting the salt in your diet, try the lower-sodium ham products now available, or just enjoy ham in smaller portions. By definition, ham is the meat from the hind leg of a hog, and can be cured, canned or smoked. It is available in a variety of styles including boneless, bone-in, semi-boneless, portions and specialty hams. To...

m * M ffi {HM| IKf Wm Vol. 54, No. 1 Farmers upset with proposed extension cuts By NORM HYDE VFBF Broadcast Editor RICHMOND —Gov. George Allen's proposed budget amendments for fiscal year 1995-96 would force a massive restructuring of Virginia Cooperative Extension, slash agricultural research funding and cut $1.8 million from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. As unveiled inADen's budget plan Dec. 19, extension and research programs at Virginia Tech and research stations across the state would be cut by 30 peroent That computes to a loss of $7.9 million for extension and $4.9 million for research programs on top of $2.9 million already slated to be cut Farm Bureau is supporting a $14.6 million amendment at the General Assembly to win back most of that vital funding.

2 Farm Bureau needs your help to save extension ag programs The big ax of government is ready to fall on Virginia agriculture with a heavy thud. Because of the potential slashing of agricultural research and service on the state level, Virginia producers will now spend more time searching for vital agricultural information and less time in the fields where they truly need to be. Last month, Gov. George Allen proposed slashing $7.9 million over the next biennium from the already under-funded Virginia Cooperative Extension budget. The governor's proposed cuts come on top of the $2.9 million already slashed when Gov. Doug Wilder was still in the Governor's mansion. Another $4.9 million is slated to be cut from Virginia Tech's 12 Agriculture Experiment Stations. Also, vital inspection services are slated to be trimmed from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. That translates to a potential loss of 275 Extension and 120 research employees. Farm Bureau is supporti...

February 1995 Cuts harmful to Virginia agriculture (Continued from Page 1) "Regionalization is an efficiency move," Lockridge said. These state cuts come on the heels of a massive reorganization and streamlining of U.S. Department of Agriculture county offices in Virginia, which was announced Dec. 6. But Allen said extension is a different agency with a different mission than that of the USDA. "The downside of regionalization is a loss of access by citizens to our offices when they have needs for educational information and programming," he said. "Also, there will probably be a loss of county support" once an extension office is no longer physically located in a county, Allen said. Extension positions are paid for from federal, state and local funds, and the Allen administration wants to cut extension funding to the federal support level alone. "Farmers are not the only ones who benefit from a county extension agent," Ashworth said. "Homeowners and local businesses use the teaching ...

4 Farmers —now is the time to buy federal crop insurance! You have until March 15 to purchase catastrophic crop insurance from your Farm Bureau insurance adviser. Why buy it? I Crop insurance is now linked to federal farm programs. 0 Starting March 15, if you produce crops for which insurance is available and don't carry at least catastrophic insurance, you won't be eligible for price support or production adjustment programs, some FmHA loans and the Conservation Reserve Program. What is catastrophic crop insurance? I Catastrophic crop insurance is designed to provide you with a financial "safety net" against the risk of major crop loss. Unlike the former disaster assistance programs, the level of protection is known in advance and kicks in on an individual basis. The insurance policy guarantees 50% of your average yield. If you have production records for the most recent four years, the yield guarantee will be 50% of the simple average yield for those years. 0 If you don't have pro...
