nrTOBER, 1956 NO. 61 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO has always required great care and effort from the grower for top results . . . yet young people in the Flue-cured area are proving each year that they are fully capable of producing tobacco of high quality. Not only do they grow tobacco successfully . . . they also know how to market it efficiently. These facts are of great importance to the future of the Flue-cured tobacco industry, and justify the practical and farseeing youth programs being carried out with the help of County Agents, Tobacco Extension Specialists, and Vocational Agriculture Teachers.

Virginia type growers have a very definite interest in desiring to see U. S. Standards which will not result in an unfair competitive advantage for a particular type peanut. Therefore, Virginia interests supported revised standards which would reduce damage tolerance for Virginias and Runners to 1.25 percent with Spanish remaining at .75 per cent. This position was reasonably in line with that of the Spanish interests of the Southwest. No decision has been announced.

OCTOBER, 1956 'Zero Grazing' Is Desirable, According To VPI Specialist The practice known as "zero grazing" has a place in Virginia's dairy industry, believes Dr. G. C. Graf, head of the VPI dairy department. Zero grazing, or "soiling" as it Is variously known, is the practice of bringing feed to the cow. Dr. Graf says it is particularly adaptable to larger herds, 40 cows or over, where the farmer owns his own equipment for cutting and moving the feed. Many advantages are claimed for zero grazing as compared to ordinary grazing, including higher yields of forage per acre, more uniform quality of forage, adaptability to distant fields, reduction in fencing costs, more effective control of bloat, easy adaptation to a strip-cropping program, prevention of soil compaction, and more uniform milk production, especially during hot summer months. There are also some disadvantages, Dr. Graf says. Zero grazing requires expensive equipment and extra labor. It is not adapted to stony or hilly l...

6 Z/otir State Chairman Says . . By Mrs. Harry D. Hevener Fall is arriving in all its splendor and by now the children and grandchildren are getting in the routine of school. I know we housewives are glad the canning season is nearing its end—but do you know of anything that gives you a more satisfied feeling than to look at a cellar filled with canned food for winter? Somehow the memory of the heat and hard work fade and only the satisfaction is lift. Fairs have also come in for their share of attention: local, county and state. It was interesting to note the increased number of fairs calling for the booth display at the state office. I hope a lot of you women helped with the fairs in your area. It is a good way to interest women in the work of Farm Bureau. Another county, Louisa, has appointed a women's committee chairman. Mrs. Engleman has a wonderful background for the work and I enjoyed so much my visit with the Louisa members last month. My congratulations to newly organized R...

OCTOBER, 1956 American Farm Bureau Asks For Better Export Program An estimated GO per cent of U. S. agricultural exports last year were t he direct result of government sales, gift and export subsidy programs. This was cited by the American Farm Bureau Federation recently to back up its contention that "economic policy and reciprocal trade programs of the United States must be implemented to the extent that farmers can sell their products in foreign markets for dollars." Testifying before the Customs, Tariffs and Reciprocal Trade Agreements Subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee, AFBF Legislative Director John C. Lynn declared: "We would like to make clear that we have supported most of these programs and still do; however, the situation calls for close examination." He insisted that "unless and until nations are given an expanding opportunity to earn dollars with which to buy our farm products, agriculture may well be forced to continue to use special government export ...

tffIVEMBER, 1956 NO. 62 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference Cooperation in Research Improves Flue-Cured Tobacco L , All phases of production, from plant bed through curing barn, arc the concern of tobacco research. The American farmer, using his God-given heritage of good soil and good climate, and freedom of thought and action, applies his judgment and muscle to produce the kind of tobacco that the trade needs, at a price that will give him a satisfactory return for his months of labor. The tobacco scientist, whether plant pathologist, chemist, agronomist, entomologist, or engineer, painstakingly works out answers to the problems of tobacco production, and as changing conditions create new problems, their work goes on. The tobacco manufacturer, through modern methods of processing, blending, fabrication, packaging and merchandising, converts fine domestic tobacco into fine domestic cigarettes. As the manufacturer is dependent upon a continuing sour...

6 VFB Mutual Has Rapid Growth Farm Bureau Insurance Makes Spectacular Progress JL C Spectacular growth with unexcelled service has characterized the first six years of the Farm Bureau Insurance Program. The company began operations September 15, 1950, and by September 15, 1956, it had assets in excess of one million dollars and an annual premium income of over $1,200,000. In addition to writing at a rate equal or lower than all competitors, the company has paid during this period over $140,000 in cash dividends. The company's spectacular growth both in size and financial soundness has been overshadowed by its apparent impact on the insurance industry. The first six years of its existence has found the insurance industry recognizing publicly (what they have known for years) that farmers are a preferred risk —so much so that the year 1956 finds all farmers having their rates discounted 20% just because they are farmers. In addition to this discount, the industry, for the first time, r...

Estimates made by the Rural Electrification Administration indicate that on last June 30 the percentage of farms and ranches with electric power gtood at 94.2.

Today there are 39 states where more than nine out of 10 farms have power. For some areas the increase has been swift. In North Dakota ( for example, the 1946 figure was 10.4 percent. Now it is 84.4. For South Dakota the comparable figures are 13.5 percent and 86.7 percent. In Mississippi the 10-year increase was from 24.8 to 87.2 percent.

A free American Free to speak without fear; Free to worship in my own way; Free to stand for what I think right; Free to oppose what I believe wrong; Free to choose those who govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind. With the political campaigns uppermost in our minds, this pledge should cause us to stop and think. I hope there isn't a Farm Bureau woman who did not make use of her privilege to vote. This is One of our most precious freedoms. Let's use it so we won't lose It. Every time we give up or surrender some freedom we are giving up opportunity and educational and social advantages. Because emergencies called for surrender of local freedoms, we need to reclaim those freedoms now! Many problems are not solved by the Federal Government—counties and states must act for their own good. Farm Bureau is one of the few organizations leading the fight for economi...
