Farm Bureau Volume 56, Number 8 Virginia helps meet world demand for pork By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor PROVIDENCE FORGE—Demand for pork is up worldwide, and Virginia's hog producers want to increase their production of hogs in a way that is environmentally safe. That was the view of hog industry experts during a tour of a hog farm in Charles City County on Aug. 7. Reporters from across the state gathered at Bill Bailey's Mt. Sterling farm for a question-and-answer session with hog industry representatives. Virginia produced 1.2 million hogs in 1980, but produces only 900,000 now, said John Parker, executive director of the Virginia Pork Industry Board. Hog operations have become more environmentally sensitive since the late 1970s when some hogs weren't kept in buildings, he noted. Now, however, hogs stay inside buildings, which are ventilated. Their waste is stored either in a belowfloor pit or in a pond-like lagoon where bacteria breaks down the nutrients, which are sprea...

Farm Bureau News Center focuses work on tobacco crop Editor's note: This is the seventh in a continuing series about Virginia's 12 agricultural research and Extension centers. By KATHY DIXON VFBF Communications Specialist BLACKSTONE —People count pennies, sheep and their blessings. But at the Southern Piedmont Agricultural Research and Extension Center, they count bugs. College students counted aphids on burley tobacco this summer. It's part of a research project to see how many aphids a plant can tolerate before it's destroyed. Other college students are counting beetles on blackberry bushes to see if biological control experiments are working. Bug counting is all part of the center's many research projects, 70 percent of which are focused on tobacco. "We've got all kinds of projects going on here," said the center's director, Dr. James jones. "But the majority of our research is still with tobacco. It's a $196 million crop." Located on 1,130 acres at Fort Pickett, the research sta...

September/October 1997 Members made difference on 'Death Tax' The grassroots system is alive and well in Farm Bureau. Because our dedicated county leaders wrote a whopping 7,728 letters to their members of Congress asking them to "Kill the Death Tax," the situation will greatly improve beginning next year. Pressuring Congress to increase the estate tax exemption on a family farm from $600,000 to $1.3 million beginning in 1998 is a clear example of how Farm Bureau's grassroots system can make a difference. Where is the gas tax spent? A battle for federal transportation dollars is going on in Washington D.C. now. President Clinton has signed the budget bill, and attention has shifted to the next bigmoney item* the six-year, $ 180 biilion highway and mass transit bill. The budget package shifted revenue from the 4.3-cents-per-gallon gas tax from reducing the deficit to boosting the Highway Fund.

September/October 1997 Virginia onions may go into national foods By ERIC MILLER Farm Bureau News Editor EMPORIA—If all goes well, Virginia onions could wind up in national-brand soups, salad dressings and hamburgers. For the first time in decades, farmers on Virginia's Eastern Shore grew hundreds of acres of onions this summer. With the drought, however, it wasn't a good year to start growing onions. But all of the growers relied on irrigation. They contracted with Atlantic Dehydrated Foods L.C., which finished building a $5 million onion dehydration plant this summer, said Dale Patton, president of Atlantic. Onions from Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia are minced, chopped and granulated at the plant in Emporia, Patton said. Then they pass through a three-phase gas-fired dryer. The plant also has a 40,000-square-foot cold storage facility, which will hold up to 30 million pounds of onions. The storage facility is the largest of its kind in the world, Patton noted.

September/October 1997 Hog producer opens farm to media viewing (Continued from page 1) reacted to some citizens' concerns about lagoon spills in North Carolina in 1995. The spills occurred during heavy rains and polluted streams and drew national news coverage. The Tar Heel State now has tough regulations for hog operations. These are comparable to the ones Virginia has had for years. "In the early 1980s, Virginia began to require liners in manure storage lagoons," said Dr. Eldridge Collins, professor of biological systems engineering at Virginia Tech. Lagoons are carefully designed not to overflow or leak into groundwater. Similar standards went into effect in North Carolina after the 1995 lagoon spills. Officials with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation inspect hog operations regularly, said Terry Moss, a nutrient management specialist with DCR. Soil and manure tests are a part of the program too. In addition, regulations govern the times of year when nutrients...
