10 Virginia deer herd is largest since days of Columbus Continued from Page 1 3,717 deer. Hunters alone killed 209,373 deer that year. In 1995, the state issued 1,071 kill permits and farmers had killed over 3,360 deer by year's end. As for deer killed by hunters in 1995, "we're looking at about 200,000," said Bob Duncan, wildlife division director for the state game department. Another 50,000 deer were killed by motorists and illegal hunts, as well as farmers who obtained kill permits, Duncan estimated. Despite the killing of 250,000 deer, the population is expected to rise to about 950,000 by summer, he noted. "Deer herds are bigger now than any time in history," said Dr. Paul Reese, a former researcher at the Tidewater Research Center in Suffolk. "If there's a real heavy deer population in your area, there are three things you can do: shoot the deer, put up electric fences or forget about farming soybeans," Reese said. Before taking a job with Asgrow Seed Co. in Kalamazoo, Mich.,...

Vol. 55, No. 2 Farm Bureau leaders push issues with lawmakers By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor Some 110 Farm Bureau leaders met individually with state lawmakers on Jan 29 to encourage them to keep farmers in mind when voting on agricultural issues. During a breakfast meeting, the leaders, many of whom are county Farm Bureau presidents, received ooaching from the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's public affairs staff. Sen. Richard J. Holland, D-Isle of Wight County, chairman of the senate rules committee and a member of the finance and agriculture committees, spoke to the group during the breakfast meeting.

March 1996 Member awareness and involvement is goal of SOS As a membership organization, the strength of the American, Virginia and county Farm Bureau lies with its members. The level of this strength can be directly traced to the level of membership involvement and activity. Over the years, as our organization has evolved, it has become apparent that some of the biggest chal- lenges and opportunities a county Farm Bureau faces is how to get more of its members interested and involved in what Farm Bureau is doing. With the time demands today, securing genuine support and involvement is becoming more and more of a formidable challenge. Because the leadership of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation recognizes the need for increased member involvement on the county level, and because the magnitude erf this challenge is recognized, the Seeds of Success Program was born. This program is really not new, although some ideas are. Seeds of Success is merely a way Farm Bureau can compile its i...

8 YF group examines ag issues By Eric Miller Farm Bureau News Editor They had tug-of-war contests, picked up pointers on financial management and were urged to reach for their dreams. The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers' organization met in Charlottesville for its annual leadership conference. More than 100 farmers, ages 18-35, came from across the state to attend the Jan. 26-28 conference. It included discussions on contacting state legislators, important agricultural issues facing lawmakers, leadership and teamwork, and products offered through Farm Bureau. During the Saturday morning breakfast, Alex Hamilton, director ofVFBF public affairs, told farmers, "If s important for you to be involved in the legislative process because you're the future of Farm Bureau.

March 1996 Senate ag chairman understands life on the farm By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor RICHMOND—They say you'll understand a man better if you walk a mile in his shoes. If that's true, the chairman of the Virginia Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee must have a pretty good understanding of farmers. Sen. Madison E. Marye, DMontgomery County, has walked many a mile on his beef cattle farm near Shawsville. He also grew up on a farm. Maiye became chairman of the committee in January. He replaces former Sen. Elmo Cross, D-Hanover County, who lost his re-election bid in November 1995. Maiye serves on four other senate committees: privileges and elections, general laws, finance and rules. He's a member of the Montgomery County Farm Bureau. He's also dealt with some of the same problems other farmers have faced, including predator control. Black vultures, a federally protected species, have tried to attack his newborn calves. He's driven them away wit...

The State Women's Committee's goals are to: ■ Strive to make women more aware of the opportunities Farm Bureau offers. ■ Continue to encourage and promote patriotism. Cotton hits peak in Old Dominion RICHMOND —Higher grain prices mean that 1995 may have been the year cotton acreage peaked in Virginia, at least for the Pnext few years. Prices for corn, wheat and soybeans are higher than in recent years. If a farmer has not already invested in expensive equipment to raise cotton, he probably will stick with the more familiar grain crops, according to Steve Patterson, agronomy sales manager for Southern States Cooperative, Inc. "Any farmer will tell you he's not out there for fun," Patterson told state agriculture leaders at the Friends of the Industry of Agriculture meeting Feb. 13. mrmmm $ -- : - : :M "Jf ' : Itfck...

12 Bring in spring with Pasta Primavera! The beginning of pasta is a mystery, but the Italians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Chinese all like to claim pasta as their own. Regardless of its origin, pasta continues to prove itself as America's most perfect food. It is versatile, easy to prepare and delicious. It is high in complex carbohydrates to provide us with energy, yet it is low in fat, calories, cholesterol and sodium. Of course, it's a member of the breads, cereal, rice and pasta food group, which makes up the base of the food guide pyramid. Pasta and other grain products should make up the bulk of your diet. Pasta comes in many varieties of shapes and sizes, and they all average about 200 calories and 1 gram of fat per cup of cooked pasta. Use the different pasta shapes to make meals more interesting and attractive. When you have a thick, chunky sauce, it's best to use pasta with ridges and curves (like shells or twists) to catch the loose ingredients. For thinner sauces use lighte...

March 1996 Radishes have weighed in at 70 pounds Nearly every year, the first springseeded crop I harvest from my garden is a bunch of plump, red radishes. These colorful, crunchy roots enhance my plate as a piquant garnish for several weeks before they join lettuce and early greens in the salad bowl. Although primarily thought of as a spring crop, with careful variety selection, radishes can be part of the garden harvest from spring through fall. Cold frames and cold storage can even extend the radish-picking season into winter. Start the season by planting some mild, quick-to-mature, short crop radishes. This type forms roots ready for harvest in only 21 to 30 days. The seed requires cool soil to germinate, while the plants need mild air temperatures to develop crispy roots. Cherry Belle, Champion, and French Breakfast are among the varieties of early radishes I have come to rely upon for my first harvests. Less well known are long season radishes. These grow much larger than thei...
