Farm Bureau News New //res available By CHRIS BAXTER VFBF Writer and Designer The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation didn't waste time spinning its wheels when General Tire recently stopped making rear tractor tires. VFBF kept right on rolling with the addition of the Firestone brand farm tire to its product line. "We're very excited about our new product," said Ron W. Diamond, director of the VFBF Products Division. "We've handled the long bar/long bar tread design for more than 30 years and it's been very popular with our members. Now we can continue offering this design through the Firestone brand." Firestone's proven 23 degree tread bar angle puts the whole bar in complete contact with the ground to help maximize traction and minimize slippage. This ensures longer tire wear and gives the driver more pulling power, said Diamond. The tread bar angle also helps with efficiency by allowing the driver to do the job quicker, saving time and fuel. "If you don't use the right tires, wheel ...

November 1996 Cattle market conditions are being studied Cattle prices are on the downswing and cattle producers are feeling the pinch. Many cattle pro- ducers say they are seeing the lowest prices in six years. South Dakota ran- Farm Focus American Farm lUrrcan Federation cher Duane Keffeler fondly recalls 1990, which he calls his best year. "I sold yearlings for a big price. To get the same amount of money, I would have to sell almost twice as much," Keffeler says. Part of the reason for low cattle prices is the lack of major meat packers. There are only three left. Fewer meat packers means less competition and, therefore, lower prices. There have even been accusations of collusion directed at the remaining major packers. South Dakota Farm Bureau President Dick Kjerstad raises cattle near Wall, S.D. Kjerstad agrees that the low number of packers has stifled competitive bidding and price discovery. "When you have three major packers and one sets a price and the others don't bid bey...

Farm Bureau News 71" ANNUAL CONVENTION 'VIRGINIA FARM BUREAU Young farmers chose farm over factory jobs By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor WYTHEVlLLE—Occasionally while moving through a field on his tractor, Robbie Williams thinks about how his life would be different if he'd gone to work in a factory.

November 1996 Trapping provides extra income for landowners By JOHNNA MILLER VFBF Radio/Video Producer MECHANICSVILLE —Most people probably think of fur trapping as a practice of the past, a lifestyle left behind with the steam locomotive and horse-drawn plow. Actually the fur trade is going strong in Virginia, and could be an opportunity for farmers to snare some extra money through the winter months. "It's a good part-time activity," said Page Moran, a full-time trapper and agent for North American Auctions, the world's largest fur auction house. "Many probably have the equipment laying around in their barns," Moran said. "I would like them to know they can make money trapping on today's market." Virginia has trapping seasons for beaver, bobcat, fox, mink, muskrat, nutria, opossum, otter, rabbit and raccoon. Demand for fur is on the rise. "In the last five years the fur wasn't worth much, but last winter the market changed," Moran said. "It was a real cold winter, and people wante...
