Farm Bureau Vol. 46, No. 10 Ag leaders offer suggestions for change Olin calls deficit reduction a priority By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor WILLIAMSBURG—The federal budget is one of the key issues facing Farm Bureau members, said U.S. Rep. Jim Olin (D-Roanoke) during the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention, Dec. 2. 'The budget situation has reached the critical stage that demands a reevaluation of the entire federal government. This is a huge national problem," he said. "Everyone should feel that he or she is a part of the solution. If cuts are made fairly, with no one segment of government singled out for massive cuts or for sacred cow status, I get the feeling that the people I represent would be willing to accept their share of the cuts." The Convention's keynote speaker said he is in basic agreement with Farm Bureau's eight-point budget proposal. The proposal outlines measures Farm Bureau supports for reducing the federal budget. "You support an across-the-board f...

Keep the spirit of Christmas year round Nov. 28 officially ushered in the beginning of the Christmas season. Now children will begin reminding their parents about Santa's impending visit. There will be a tree, lights and ornaments to buy. Preparations for guests will be made. With the hustle and bustle, it is easy to lose sight of the reason Christmas is celebrated—to remember Christ's birthday. During the yuletide season, we should focus on the true spirit of the holidays—peace, joy, love and caring. It is a time to wish happiness and good will to friends and loved ones, Hunters and their game vex farmers at times (Editor s note: The following information was supplied by Don E.

December, 1987 FB members named state tobacco winners Two Farm Bureau members have been recognized for their accomplishments in tobacco production and in community involvement by Philip Morris U.S.A. During the Outstanding Young Tobacco Farmer Program awards banquet Oct. 21, John C. Bledsoe of Blackstone and R. Dale Cavin of Rose Hill received cash awards of $1,000 and a commemorative plaque for their contributions to agriculture. Bledsoe, 28, was honored as Virginia's flue-cured state winner. He and his wife, Libby, have one child and operate a tobacco and field crop farm in partnership with his father. Bledsoe said his family has been raising tobacco for a few generations and he has no intentions of seeking alternative "incomes to supplement our tobacco." "I basically think that tobacco needs to be your primary income if you 're going to keep on farming." Bledsoe takes some of the risk out of tobacco farming with irrigation. "I don't believe a tobacco farmer Tradition wins out at ...

Practically every time you open your mail, turn on the television, or read the newspaper, you see advertisements for Medicare supplemental insurance policies.

Put a Christmas tree in your mailbox By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor (Editor's note: This the fourth in a series on diversification, illustrating ways Virginia farmers have adapted to supplement their incomes.) CHRISTIANSBURG—A Virginia Tech instructor has found a way to put Christmas trees in the mailboxes of families around the nation. David Larsen, a teacher in the chemistry department, has developed a direct mail operation for Christmas trees. Larsen is also owner of Brookfield Christmas Tree Plantation in Floyd County. "We were the ones to create it commercially," he said. His mail-order business was the result of his interest in Christmas trees and experience in direct marketing. In 1967 Larsen moved from his Oregon home to join the faculty at Virginia Tech and began searching for an alternative enterprise. "I wanted to do something that wasn't full time," he said. "With cattle or any other kind of livestock, you have to be there each day." In 1968 he purchased some land to d...

For Dr. Bagley Walker and his family, it's meant a commitment to preserving land for future generations. "We raised cattle here for quite a few years, "Walker said during a recent visit on one of the Fall Forestry and Wildlife Bus Tours, sponsored by the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service at the Virginia Tech and the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. "But seeing the handwriting on t wall (for the cattle business) I decided to go into tree farming.

10 Legislation 'heart' of Farm Bureau Participation from county leaders in the Virginia Farm Bureau's Federation's legislative activities has always been important. But Alex Hamilton, Director of the Public Affairs Department of VFBF, said this year their participation will be even more important. "This year we're going to try something new," Hamilton said. "We're going to ask selected county leaders to come into Richmond. We will brief them on issues that will be before the General Assembly. 'Then we are going to ask them to go down and talk to senators and delegates from their area. We're going to request that they talk to some urban legislators that don't represent farmers. Urban legislators need to be informed on the challenges facing farmers."

December, 1987 Safety Program has sight-saving results The Virginia Farm Bureau Eye Safety Program had sight-saving results for a Fluvanna County Farm Bureau member. His sight was saved the first time he wore his new Titmus safety glasses distributed by the Farm Bureau. The unidentified man was planning to burn tree limbs and brush. He and his neighbor had cut trees for firewood and he was going to clear the land for spring planting. It was a damp morning. He piled the brush up and sprinkled it with gasoline. He walked about 50 feet from the pile. When he lit his match, the whole area around him exploded. The high humidity had held gas fumes close to the ground near him. He was treated at the University of Virginia Hospital for severe first and second degree burns on his face and hands. According to his wife, her husband's glasses with protective side shields had arrived the day before the accident. In her comments on a member satisfaction survey, she said, "He wore his glasses for ...
