March 1995 Annual expo showcases beef business By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor HARRISONBURG—Beef is big business in Virginia. Based on 1993 figures, cattle was the state's second largest commodity. And a January 1995 survey released by the Virginia Agricultural Statistics Service indicates that cattle numbers are on the rise. So it's fitting that the state is getting ready for its 6th Annual Virginia Beef Expo to showcase the industry. The expo, scheduled for April 21-23 at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg, is expected to bring in more than 6,000 people from states up and down the East Coast, said Dr. A.L. "Ike" Eller Jr., the expo's manager. Last year's event drew around 5,000 participants from 17 states, Eller said. "If s gotten a Mid-Atlantic flavor to it." Discussion about starting a beef expo in Virginia began around 1987, according to Eller. The Virginia Cattlemen's Association got involved and helped form an expo board of directors, including up to two...

Farm Bureau Vol. 54, No. 3 Strong lobbying efforts net restored ag funds By NORM HYDE VFBF Broadcast Editor RICHMOND—When the fireworks were over at the 1995 General Assembly, Virginia Cooperative Extension and ag research programs were only singed. Thanks to strong lobbying by Farm Bureau members and other extension supporters, $12.2 million was restored to the budgets of those valuable programs. Gov. George Allen proposed cutting $14.6 million, but a budget amendment sponsored by Sen. Madison Marye, DMontgomery County, and Del. Earl Dickinson, D-Louisa County, had overwhelming support. "Our county Farm Bureau leaders need to be sure to thank their senators and delegates for their support in this last session of the Assembly," observed C.Wayne Ashworth, president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. While strong contacts by voters had a lot to do with restoring the funding, so did some of the most acrimonious debate between Republicans and Democrats in recent General Assembly hi...

2 Farm Bureau presses Congress on regulatory relief More than 100 Farm Bureau leaders made the long, tiring trip across the Virginia countryside to the heart of our nation's government March 14-15. Many members left early in the morning on the 14th and returned home to their families late the following evening. A month earlier, Farm Bureau members donated another full day to be part of the American Farm Bureau Federation's 1995 National Leadership Conference. It was during this four-hour video teleconference that members learned more specifics about the national issues they pressed their congressmen for while inside the beltway on March 15. This is what grass-roots representation is all about. Members learn more about agricultural issues on the national level, and then apply what they learn while in Washington. This way, Farm Bureau members are able to speak collectively and intelligently American agriculture's quality and quantity are envy of the world American agriculture's produc...

April 1995 Tobacco representative touts Farm Bureau's political influence By GREG HICKS VFBF Communications Director ROANOKE—Farm Bureau's political influence is well-known and envied in Virginia and around the world, according to the head lobbyist for the nation's largest tobacco company. Jay Poole, director of government and community relations with Philip Morris USA, told 60 county Farm Bureau presidents Feb. 27 that "Farm Bureau has enormous political influence—both individually and collectively. "You have a lot of votes," he reminded the leaders who were gathered at the annual Virginia Farm Bureau Federation President's Conference.

April 1995 Advisers shape up their careers with 'Professional Fitness' By REBECCA COLNAR VFBF County Communications Specialist RESTON—Virginia Farm Bureau insurance advisers learned about professional, mental and physical fitness at the 1995 Annual Sales Conference. The theme, "Professional Fitness," encompassed the entire event, which was March 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency. Keynote speakers and workshop sessions all stressed the importance of good professional fitness. The conference began with a motivational speaker, world jump-rope wizard and Olympic wrestler Anthony "Buddy" Lee. Lee, clad in patriotic colore and twirling a rope, talked about his determination to succeed in life, even though he was brought up in less-than-ideal circumstances. "I learned you must practice, practice, practice to become your best," Lee said. "And in preservation, determination, never giving up and believing in yourself." He explained how his jump rope has been his key to fitness and self esteem. "The r...

April 1995 Committee told aquaculture industry continues to grow RICHMOND —Members of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Aquaculture Commodity learned Feb. 21 that the aquaculture industry continues to grow.

"I would like to thank you for coming in. I learned some really neat things," Fallon DuPlantis wrote to the same firefighter. And the teachers gave the program good reviews as well. "I feel that the program was of real benefit to my class," one teacher wrote on his evaluation form. "Very good—l'd recommend it to all fourth-grade classes," another teacher said At two fourth-grade classes in Richmond County, Henrico County firefighter Lee Richards told students that in 1992, two out of every three structure fires occurred in homes. And one out of every 12 of those involved a fatality. "Do you have fire drills here at school?" Richards asked the students. "Yes!" the children responded enthusiastically. "Well, then shouldn't you have fire drills at home?" Richards asked rhetorically. The students nodded...

April 1995 Women learn about food safety, animal welfare and better writing (Continued from Page 8) how food inspections are performed, in case they want to incorporate food safety into any of their consumer education programs. Approximately 6 ] A million Virginians come into contact with food every day, Tubbs said, so ensuring food safety is a big responsibility. And while many people have the idea there's too much interference by government, VDACS only enforces what the General Assembly passes, Tubbs said. Many of those regulations are necessary to protect the state's food supply. To protect Farm Bureau women from misunderstood committee reports, VFBF Communications Director Greg Hicks, assisted by VFBF Broadcast Editor Norm Hyde, taught the women how to write better reports. The women were shown a video on business writing and were given handouts on using the five Ws—who, what, when, where and why. They were then treated to a narrative by Hyde portraying "CBS news anchor Walter C...

April 1995 Lobbying efforts pay off for Farm Bureau (Continued from Page 1) them a state sales tax exemption for those products. The bill also deletes the requirement for a state fishing license when catfish are caught in recreational ponds. Efforts to increase the "roll-back" tax assessment for property taken out of landuse taxation programs from five years to 10 years died in committee. Once again, suburban legislators led the attack on that program, arguing it was an unfair tax break for landowners. An attempt to weaken the state's new Right-to-Farm law also failed in committee. That bill would have allowed localities to pass environmental requirements for farming operations. Several anti-smoking bills were killed or amended to the point they would have no real impact on the tobacco industry. But a bill to prohibit burley tobacco auction warehouses from selling tobacco if they were licensed under the U.S. Warehouse Act was sent to a study committee by the House Agriculture Commit...

12 Sharing earth's bounty made simple during national gardeners' observance Sharing the bounty of the earth is one of the true joys of gardening. Gardeners frequently offer family members and friends gifts from their gardens. This produce is usually gratefully received by neighbors, but some overripen on kitchen counters and in the field. One part of your community which won't let your garden gifts go to waste are the volunteers at food banks, soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Nearly all cities and towns have a food program for people affected by recent tragedies and those down on their luck. And most programs are well-organized volunteer efforts run by church and community groups. These charities use vegetables and fruits daily in meal preparation and emergency grocery bags. Fresh food is a luxury to the needy. So your nutritious, home-grown beans, tomatoes and lettuce can enhance what will be for some the only meal of the day. Gardeners can show gratitude for their abilities an...
